"I am strong and smart and willing to do whatever it takes to make the world right, even when I am undervalued and underestimated at every turn. I am beautiful, I am resolute, and I am capable of more love than you could ever imagine. I am your sister, your daughter, your wife and your best friend. I am ancient and I am naïve. I am your grandmother and your Baba Yaga; I am the bones of your civilization and the memory of all that’s come before. I am stories by the fireside and promises of the future. I am your brightest hope for a better tomorrow."
That is a paragraph lifted out of a poem written by a beautiful, intelligent, wonderful woman known as sroxy. To read the full poem, which you should do because it's lovely, go visit her blog.
