An Ode to Women


Hello everybody.

This post is: biased, personal, emotional, feminist, filled with grace, wishful, subjective, powered-up, cropped from other people's posts, inspirational, glorifying.... and it's for women everywhere!



Dear women.
I admire your sensitivity
I hold on to your tenderness like hope between my palms, I thrive when I see you standing up for your heart. You are the truest form of rebellious I know, for you act with sentiment and softness when the world asks you to change. You have never allowed for such a world to harden you, you have never silenced your empathy, and that makes you a marvel to both the human soul and the human eye.



You are the stillness in the air on a summer’s day, the slight rustle of wind through forests of greens and yellows. You are the top of a mountain, in all of its glory, and vastness, and exquisiteness.



You are strength. You are vigor and ruthlessness that fights every single day to achieve and love. Some of you are lost to insensitive laws, to archaic theology, to violence and to poverty, and yet there is still a confidence that envelopes the bones of a woman, there is always still courage in your eyes. 



You inspire through that, and you save lives every single day when you awake and exclaim your power, your thirst for equality. You allow the others to know that they aren’t alone, you mother the lost, the hurting, the broken and you are an example of selfless might. You hold the worlds hand, and within that you create unity, you breed hope



For that all I can say, all I can yell from the top of my lungs and from the deepest, most grateful part of my soul isThank you.”

  1. LOVE THOSE CHARLESTONING FLAPPERS!

    Yes, we have many women (and men) who fought for equality to be grateful for... There's still so much to do globally. We can do it, though.

    1. Yeah...
      while I was searching for some suitable images to follow my text in this post (mothers with children, or maybe some pastel and delicate flowers) I came across girls dancing, and said to myself: "why not?" :)
