Sometimes it takes beautiful words, ideas and insights to remind us just exactly who the F**k we are! While I may not have used beautiful words to title this, I wanted to give you a literal (or literary) shake, to make sure that your paying attention. Many of us tend to forget just how amazing, beautiful and powerful we are. Whether through conditioning, stress and overwhelm, or general expectations from others, we somewhere along the line lose touch with ourselves, feel trapped, and the true reality is that we are free. We have the freedom of choice and that means our lives can change at any moment. We CAN do the thing we have always secretly dreamt of doing, we CAN leave the relationship that is holding us back, we CAN visit to far off lands, we CAN choose; WE CAN ALWAYS CHOOSE.

So, with this in mind, I have compiled 10 inspiring poems to help you remember how amazing you really are, and that no matter the struggle you can always CHOOSE to come out on top you Beautiful Woman!!!
10 POEMS TO REMIND YOU WHO THE F**K YOU ARE!
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies.
It’s in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman Phenomenally.
Milk & Honey
I do not want to have you To fill the empty parts of me.
I want to be full on my own.
I want to be so complete I could light a whole city
I want to have you
Cause the two of us combined Could set it on fire.
Remember, Woman, you were born life giver, miracle creator, magic maker. You were born with the heart of a thousand mothers, open and fearless and sweet.
You were born with the fire of Queens & conquerors, warrioress blood you bleed.
You were born with the wisdom of sages & shamans, no wound can you not heal.
You were born the teller of your own tale, before none should you kneel.
You were born with an immeasurable soul reaching out past infinity.
You were born to desire with passion, abandon, and to name your own destiny.
Remember, Woman, remember you are more than you can see.
Remember, Woman, remember you are loved endlessly.
Remember, Woman, your power and grace, the depth of your deep sea heart.
Never forget you are Woman, divine, as you have been from the start.
My Personal Quest
For most of my life, I've been on a quest
To discover just who I might be,
Earnestly searching, day after day,
So desperate to recognize me.
I've felt moments of utter fulfillment
And moments I couldn't go on,
But I knew for the sake of my heart and my soul,
To succeed, I would have to be strong.
But the people around me seemed so lost themselves
That I feared I might be on my own.
But then there'd be someone who would reach out and help
And remind me I wasn't alone.
I've wanted so much to be happy,
To know what it was to feel peace,
And I thought if I finally felt sure of myself,
Then the pain and the struggles would cease.
But I've learned that this journey is endless;
The discoveries are fresh every day,
And no matter how much I might know of myself,
They'll be times I will still lose my way.
And as I've grown older, I truly believe
I may never know all I can be.
But the answers are not waiting out in the world
But have always laid right inside me.
We're all on this quest to discover ourselves,
Together but through our own ways,
Overcoming whatever might get in our paths,
So we can feel better someday.
But always remember not to stray far
From what matters and what's really true.
In this life you don't have to be perfect.
In the end, you just have to be you.
Patricia A. Fleming
Breathe in the fresh air,
Put your mind at ease.
Let down your hair,
Let it flow in the breeze.
Let your eyes wander
To all the beauty to be seen.
If those toxic thoughts you still do ponder,
Then let out a scream.
Scream until the pain is gone,
Until you no longer feel afraid.
Open your eyes to a new dawn,
Let the darkness fade.
No longer compare yourself
Or your flaws to others' perfections.
Take the negativity off the shelf.
Focus on your direction.
Pick the sadness up off the floor,
Sweep it into the wind.
Close the door on self-hatred.
Never let it back in.
For the lies it would often tell you,
You will no longer agree.
Happiness and love are what you should hold onto.
They are whom you should give the key.
Pay no attention to the toxic thoughts,
Listen to those who adore everything you are.
Overthinking was what you once were taught,
But now those thoughts you put in a jar.
Focus on your goals,
Never lose your fight.
It's time to open new scrolls.
Everything will be all right.
Katy A. Brown
You Will Never See Me Fall
You may see me struggle, but you won't see me fall.
Regardless if I'm weak or not, I'm going to stand tall.
Everyone says life is easy, but truly living it is not.
Times get hard, people struggle and constantly get put on the spot.
I'm going to wear the biggest smile, even though I want to cry. I'm going to fight to live, even though I'm destined to die.
And even though it's hard and I may struggle through it all,
you may see me struggle... but you will NEVER see me fall.
Yes, she’s been fractured, Broken down And messed around Taken to the heights And dropped down
She’s picked herself up, put the pieces together again brushed away your dirt and emerged stronger.
She may have lost a move, But not the game
And now resilience Is her middle name.
She wore Confidence like a second skin
Self-respect like bright red lips
Courage like a satin slip dress And kindness?
She wore kindness like sweet, sweet perfume.
You are not your age, nor the size of clothes you wear, You are not a weight, or the color of your hair.
You are not your name, or the dimples in your cheeks. You are all the books you read, and all the words you speak.
You are your croaky morning voice, and the smiles you try to hide. You’re the sweetness in your laughter, and every tear you’ve cried.
You’re the songs you sing so loudly when you know you’re all alone. You’re the places that you’ve been to, and the one that you call home.
You’re the things that you believe in, and the people whom you love. You’re the photos in your bedroom, and the future you dream of.
You’re made of so much beauty, but it seems that you forgot When you decided that you were defined by all the things you’re not.
Beautiful girl, You are made from a cosmic quake. And look at you… As unique as each snowflake.
You were meant to be here just exactly as you are. Now, My darling, don't be afraid to raise your bar.
So, when you find yourself feeling lost and tired. Beautiful girl, know that just by being you, you have inspired.
My Beautiful Girl, for Greatness YOU are wired!
I personally wrote the last poem in the list above. Sometimes you teach or share what you need to learn most. When I wrote this, I was struggling and definitely needed a reminder of just who the F**k I am and, who we all are. Because I know for sure, we are all connected and all made unique for a reason. There is no one else like you, remember that!
My hope is that you take these poems and print or copy the one(s) that resonate with you and put it somewhere where you can see it and read it often so that you know you're not alone, and that you are a BEAUTIFUL GIRL in all the ways that matter.
Please share this with a loved one that might need a reminder of just how powerful, amazing and beautiful they are, and as always please start a conversation with me in the comments, let me know what you thought of the poems. Which is your favorite? Share with me other uplifting poems that you love!!!
I would love to connect, come join me on the socials where I share what I'm learning & get a daily dose of positivity!
