Growth of Her Awakening

by Kirsty Anne Richards


Women grow up conditioned

to appease others,

to nurture others,

to please others,

to set aside their worth for

the benefit of others.


Women grow up having

to find themselves amongst

the rubble of lies

told to them

Over

and

Over

again

until they

Believe

the words of the wicked.


Women grow up into

full whole beings, though told they are

fragments of their true selves.


Women grow up to

Wake up

and once she sees her

True worth

Her Full self

The Truth of her being,


Women grow up into

The Goddesses they were meant to be


Powerful.


Strong.


Formidable.


feared by all those who

Silenced her, who

Lied to her, who

Wounded her, who

Raped her of her worth.


Women, one day,

grow up.
