Speaking Her Truth || A Poem about Empowerment

Ever had the feeling that your voice is lost, overthinking every word that comes to mouth, or is it mind. It's at those moments that you need to dig deep and find your voice within.




Her thoughts,

her ideas

they are her own

Let her flourish

in what she does

that's speaking the truth

A woman who has so much to say,

she will contribute,

she will caution,

she will advise

and she will succeed

But above all,

she will not be silenced




It's been years since I have last written down a poem, but the past few days I had so many thoughts rushing through my head, that I decided to put it down the old fashioned way. With pen and paper 😅
It feels good to pick it up again; I remember now why it used to be one of my many outlets.
I hope this piece will help women who are being stifled; be it in school, at work, in a (abusive) relationship, or wherever; to find the strength in their voice again.

And there's the truth @tanjakolader!

Such truer words have never been spoken.

Great poem and I look forward to hearing more now that you have started again!

In the meantime, take care, be safe and speak soon. 😊

Thank you 😊
And will do my best to keep developing my skills.

See u soon on the Hive!

Oh well, if you keep writing then you won't need to practice cause you will already be practicing- there is only doing and in doing then you will get better!

Speak soon and take care 😊

I hear you @tanjakolader and often I am my own worst enemy.
I can find it only when the person I want to surpass is myself.

Welcome to Ladies of Hive!

True, even I deal with it from time to time.
Good to know I'm not the only one and glad that it may inspire other women or girls out there.

Feel very welcomed by the way 😁

I'm "digging it"! keep on sharing those thoughts.

she will contribute,
she will caution,
she will advise

Powerful lines, and I do agree.

Above all she will not be silenced.

hehhehee
