Inspired

I see only a little
in the years someone told us
would be easy and safe
life is unfair and unkind
still challenging still testing
haven’t we grown enough?

I see only a little
grief and worry
weariness penetrates
despite our resolve
We are strong women
are we not?

I see only a little
but feel something more
a love of beauty
open and moving
depth of feeling
you are my heroine.
