Here is to all that I've learned and to what I've become.
Never again
will I look in the mirror,
see fat before beauty,
when I look at myself.

                   Yes, I am Beauty.

Never again
will I keep hushed my voice,
value image before power,
if I know the truth.

                   Yes, I am Power.

Never again
will I ignore my own courage,
put fear before wisdom,
in choosing my path.

                   Yes, I am Wisdom.

Never again
will I temper my spirit,
put rules before passion,
when I yearn to live free.

                   Yes, I am Passion.

Each fateful moment
I will shine grace and glory,
mix compassion and heart
with humor and strength.

                   Yes, I am Woman.
                   I love being me.
