Knocked over by the storm, turned around, flipped upside down,
slightly torn, bleeding from the inside.
Delicate and fragile
Weeping and whimpering
Rushing like an overflowing river
Calmed by the silence of her inner world
Day by day, a smile emerges from under the rubble
Into her belly
The challenge, the lessons, the direction.
She knows, she empowers, she begins
One step, one day, one decision
Her body responds
Her womb speaks
wiser, stronger, grounded, empowered
