She feels like she's not worth the extra cream
on her her ice cream sundae.
A photograph to be smitten by.
A second kiss and an extra hug good bye.
She thinks she's not worthy of a snazzy outfit
with accessories to match.
A day all to herself.
A girls night out.
She's silently been told she's not allowed
to express her ideas and thoughts.
Her wants and her needs.
She is nothing. She has nothing.
Nothing to lose if she speaks.
So she speaks:
I was created for great things.
Helping others to see light in their dark stories.
Seeing beauty where none could be seen.
Providing women a way to see how beautiful they really are.
I am a woman of grace and purpose.
I am beautiful and capable.
I am soft and strong.
I am worthy.
And so are you.
