Woman, Be Your Own Star!

A Woman should be the star in her own life.
A Woman must not accept; she must challenge.
She must not be awed by that which she been built up around them;
A Woman must respect that woman in her which struggles for expression.
A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.

If you look at what you have in life,
You'll always have more.
If you look at what you don't have in life,
You'll never have enough.

No one can make you feel inferior
without your consent.
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards:
They try to have more things, or more money,
In order to do more of what they want so they will be happier.
The way it actually works is the reverse.
You must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do,
in order to have what you want.
Search your inner knowledge to find your passion.
Use that passion to determine your path.
Be proud to walk your path.
No matter what your choice (soldier, mother, business owner, community worker)
Be great at what you do.
We are all unique with unique talents.
Use those talents to change the world
One woman at a time
So be your own Star!

Great poetry!

Hi Vivian,

This is a beautiful piece of work, and well explicit about the fact that women can be their own stars, no matter what is thrown at them!
