Can you Embrace the Fierce? Poetry by Joan Ellen Gage

Mary--Embracing the Fierce

Good morning! Are we feeling fierce, today? No, well, read on and embrace the fierce!

Fierce

Can you do it?
Can you embrace the fierce,
bring it to the surface
of your being?

Your wounded warrior heart
beats, it has survived
in spite of you.

It is time to claim
this aspect of yourself,
to integrate it into your existence.

We are all Viking daughters,
armed, ready to do battle,
surrendering to no one,
not even ourselves.

The ancient one lies within.
Awaken her.
Awaken the power
Of your fierce warrior self.

by Joan Ellen Gage

Accepting yourself, faults and all!


Can you see the real me?

Acceptance

It’s the hardest thing a woman can do

To accept herself as she is, faults and all

And rise above Western civilizations’ criticism



Our society has created a model

That few can touch—

Ultra thin, flawless, plus giant breasts

Based on the “Barbie” doll figure



Women come in all shapes and sizes

Each perfect in their own way

Women must find their own exquisiteness

And embrace and love themselves

Their unique and wonderful selves!

From the book, A Redhead Looks at 60,
