QUEEN (A Poem)

crown.jpg
She knows her worth

Walks with her head held high

Realizes her beauty, but don’t use it for attention.

Confident in her skin

Accepting of her flaws, but employs it to do better.

Knows the power of her mind and sharpens it regularly,

Sharing wisdom with those she meet along the way.

She loves fully, has no grip on pride,

and in service she pours her heart.

Always there for her friends,

She stands for what she believes in.

By the strength of her will, she endures challenges that come her way;

And with discipline, never fails to carry out her mission.

She knows when to keep fighting,

and when to keep holding on,

but most importantly…

She knows when to let go.

Queen, keep being you because there’s no one else like it.

Queen, keep being you because the world needs to see it–

That being YOU is being QUEEN

and being QUEEN….

is being YOU.

This poem is dedicated to Queens all over the world, with special feature to these lovely ladies who I personally know stand true to what was said. 🙂

  2. What a beautiful poem. Sometimes women need to hear how they are seen by others. We need to be recognized, encouraged, appreciated and complimented. What a beautiful giving person you are to your friends and family.

  6. Hi Kat! I truly appreciate this poem. It not only speaks of fierceness that characterizes many women empowerment songs. It also speaks of having a quiet and gentle strength. Sometimes strength does not mean pushing things with our hands, sometimes it only means attracting things with our spirit. 🙂

  7. In my free time I also used to write inpiring poems like this. I believe this is a well-written poem. I couldn’t help it but to appreciate it. It is indeed true that every woman is a queen in their own little way — thinks smartly, stands firmly and loves fully.

  8. Hello Katrina,

    I stopped by to see how you were doing and to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful, happy and Christ-centred Christmas.

    I was blown away by the powerful words of this poem. And what a generous-hearted, affirming and loving thing to do to feature all those women. You are truly blessed to have such females as friends. Treasure them!

    The words that spoke to me were:

    “By the strength of her will, she endures challenges that come her way;

    And with discipline, never fails to carry out her mission.”

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem and the accompanying photo.
