I Thrive – Honoring women everywhere

pictures of my Ma!

I journal-ed this poem on March 1st, 2019, knowing that this is the month of the woman and March 8 was International Women’s Day. I was inspired by my mom, my daughter’s and my friends. I hope to share this everywhere!

I Thrive.

My thanks,

For I thrive on the backs of those before me,

Who let me push the full weight of my soul,

Upon their fighting minds and wise ways.

They, who saw themselves as not inferior,

Not to be owned,

Not to be ignored.

For theirs is a might unlike anything in this world,

A wonder upon which to be revered.

A roar meant to be heard.

We stand alongside humankind,

Being kind, working hard, adding value to…

Humankind.

Thank you to the many of my kind.

The sisterhood.

The coven.

The grandmamas.

The many who fought, the many who continue to fight,

To protect our place in the human race……

Where we all could…

and should…

Thrive.

Found this and it got me thinking…….

I like to consider myself a bit of both, but more on the right…  or…alot more on the right!  It’s a wonderful depiction really…simple and vivid. I more or less depends on the situation in determining which side of the brain I will use.

LEFT

I am the left brain. I am  a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate  equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right

I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I want to be.

What side are you on? Are you a little of each? Do tell!

So lately I’ve been quite the Anglophile, watching Downton Abby and Sherlock…love Masterpiece Theater, so I can’t help but think that I wrote this pretending to have an English accent. Feel free to use the accent of your choice when reading things…it’s rather fun!
