I hear her say acceptable things
about herself, at least things the world
in all its stereotypical ways finds
acceptable to say about yourself as a
young woman...but when I look
deeper I see the happiness she feels
with herself, her current self, the
beautiful and intelligent woman that
she knows she is, yet pressured
deeply by the world to conform
to standards outside of God’s definition.
Why do we do this to her? She is
amazing! She knows it! But we
do not let her express it, live it.
Be free young woman!
Be the beauty, the strength that you are!
