WORLD PULSE WOMAN - AN EMPOWERED WOMAN

GOD has been kind, gentle,
and has much love,
All of this has been given with
the blessing of the Mighty Spirit above,
But that Mighty Spirit gave me something
else and I didn’t know it...
Gave me
the blessing of being a World Pulse woman
as now my light is lit!

Till then, I remained in a shell,
Making me feel like hell
Until World Pulse came to me
And made me well

Oh My Sisters of World Pulse, you give me the strength
to conquer what's on my path,
high above and way beneath,
and the much needed strength to take on the wrath.

Now

I have come
fully alive today,
I am no longer anyone's slave or prey,
I am taking back my life today,
And those who know who I truly am,
can stay.

No longer will I live the lives of others,
I will give back the blames and responsibilities of others
where it belongs,
For I also have the bear and wolf inside me,
which is now so very powerful
and uniquely strong

Because of you, World Pulse

I know what road I must follow,
For others it will be hard to swallow.
My life was taken from me unknowingly many years ago,
And I am taking back my life before the next winds blow.

I am fully awakened and is taking a stand,
taking the problems by the horns with my hand.
I will conquer all that is there,
all and who comes as they dare,
All violence and abuse I am fully aware,
But now can never reach me or tear

Now I am taking back my life,
taking back the respect that was taken from me
throughout the years ever so slow.
I am removing pain and hurt from within the heart
caused by the knife,
from all those who are both family and foe.

I am claiming what's mine, and my dignity,
From those who live in this society of vanity.
I am claiming back in full my heritage.
And as a World Pulse woman, I am going to clean up
many years of carnage.

For now
standing in front of you,
you see this woman... you see me.
Someone special has taught me to be free,
From this day forward for me no more slavery...
Gentleness, kindness, and love is part of me, and so is my dignity.
This is NOT WEAKNESS, as others believe.
But this strength is within me and within you.

I developed the vision – reflection of a thousand voices!

We the World Pulse Women

will listen to voices of our sisters and grow,
will travel in the whispering winds as they blow.
All the work we now do will be for Our Women of all nations,
we will protect and guide the future generations.
Now it is time for me to travel on my new path,
As a World Pulse woman conquering all wrath.

If you ever see and want to meet me,
Please come, and I will also teach and share with you how to be free

To be A Woman free from all pains and struggles
Teaching lessons of perseverance
And to be a woman of strong endurance

A woman with a sword – Your powerful Voice

A WORLD PULSE WOMAN - AN EMPOWERED WOMAN!

Sharontina,
