    A poem written in tribute to a great and noble woman: a great-grandmother who has seen and suffered much and is full of love and strength.

    in Grandmother Poems

    Strong, beautiful black woman, so peaceful and serene,
    You deserve to live in Paradise and shown the finer things.
    Life has dealt you plenty of cards, some winning, others bad,
    And tides have brought in waves of memories: both happy and sad.
    Gracious, beautiful black woman, so wonderful and divine,
    You've endured many heartaches - oh, the world is so unkind!
    Your speech is confident, your eyes are soft, and your walk is hard and bold.
    Your laugh equals happiness, your heart contains love and hides the stories untold.
    Tired, beautiful black woman, so patient and so calm,
    It's funny how you hold the family's fear within your palm!
    With wrinkles, stress, and worn-torn hands, tell me how do you smile so...
    When you've traveled this long, endured all this pain, and still have miles to go.
    Blessed, beautiful black woman, so collected and confident,
    I can't imagine a gift greater than you - your love is heaven sent.
    Don't you dare give up now, just stay strong, your reward is comin'...
    Strong, courageous, gracious, blessed, and beautiful black woman.

    Beautiful Girl,
    you don’t even realize

    and see nothing but
    brilliance and grace.

  4. 43. You Are Enough

    • By Bethny Ricks
    • Published by Family Friend Poems March 2021 with permission of the Author.

    Along the way I have learned a tough lesson: even in my imperfection I am still worthy of love, someone’s time, and a consistent feeling of wholeness.
    My value is not connected to perfection, strength, or my ability to weather a storm. Which means that even on those days when I struggle to show up or feel ill-equipped, I am still a woman of worth and value

    in Inspirational Poems

    You are enough
    You have always been enough, and
    You will forever be
    Enough

    no matter what you see
    how you feel, or the lies you may
    believe

    It is all about encouraging a women to come out of her cage and work for upliftment.

    in Poems about Life Struggles

    Come on, women!
    Must rise to the challenges
    Of your enhanced responsibilities.

    Yes!

    We are already stronger.
    Never feel blue.
    Break the myth.
    No force can barricade a determined woman.

    Come out of your cage.
    Bear the pain
    Like you do the stilettos.

    Wear your elegance every day.
    Start rummaging for your upliftment.
    Miles to reach acme.

    Heads up, women!

    Don't fear the fire.
    Be the fire!
