A poem for my daughter... a prayer for all young women.
|Dare To Be
Behind your eyes a great unknown
until we see the woman grown.
Like a flower in first bloom -
until it blossoms, no perfume.
The person that we see today
will, by tomorrow, go away
and in her place a woman new
and that new person will be "you."
The trials and lessons that you learn
will make you stronger in return.
With confidence and self assurance
you will have built up your endurance
to face the challenge that is life
and overcome the daily strife.
And in the end, a woman grown
from the seeds that you have sown.
So choose your seeds with greatest care
and meet the challenge, if you dare,
to become a woman, proud and whole,
who reflects the beauty in her soul.
