This one’s dedicated to every Mom, every woman, every girl …
She thought she’s just a bunch of adjectives
Some nice, some not so nice
She held them close to her, thought they defined her!!
N as she grew, so did her ‘bunch’ of adjectives..
She never realized when n how, the adjectives got replaced by roles!!
A daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife, a daughter in law, a mother……
Now she thought, she’s just a bunch of roles! 😢
She played each role well! She did her best each time..
Yet,she got confused when the older ‘roles’ (women) compared her to them..
Buck up, you’re falling short! You should at-least be as good as me, if not better!
Lol! ATLEAST AS GOOD AS ME?????? 😥
She got stepped over, walked over by everyone!!
Everyone who compared her to them, thought she was less..
What did she think????
She agreed!!! She believed she needed to be better..
She gift wrapped her gifts, offered them to everyone around..
Always believing, she was falling short..
Yet,over performing at every role she thought defined her..
When she got in the groove, her nest got empty!!
N today she wondered WHO was she???
There were no roles to perform, anymore..
None of the elders to tell her she wasn’t good enough..
this lonely innocent being, unable to find her identity
The question mark – too heavy to handle..
And the belief, deep rooted : she wasn’t good enough!! Just not as much..
At a time this late in life, when her roles were her identity,
What could she do, other than feel empty..
Not done yet!!
this is how she saw herself!!
This isn’t who she was..
What she did all along …has shaped every individual around her
She changed this world bit by bit, more n more beautiful each time!!
she gave a piece of her heart out, each time she shone brgihter
unaware, she kept shining n emptying her heart out..
n every time, she was radiating at her best🎁❤️
N even today, what appears to be an empty, hurt and ugly heart is in reality standing UNBROKEN❤️🎁
PS: every woman should support a woman, support her in finding herself..
Rather than define her by her roles, n judge her by her short comings..
No woman is going to be like you!!! Yes – you reading this..
You are a unique energy, n no one can be better than you!! You are an only one in this world..
Stop pulling others down, cuz they don’t match up to your radiance.. They’re shining their best!!
N stop others who are not letting you shine bright..
This chain has to stop somewhere..
Being born a girl has nothing to do with who we are!! stop dressing us girls into our roles..
we can be who ever we choose to be!!!!
Absolutely who ever..
