empathy knows better to recognize and bond with a soul that has felt your pain – counsellor at last
We are now stronger warriors surviving a world so cruel and vicious.
We are the world’s greatest mothers,
striving to bring our children up on the red road.
We are beautiful butterflies showing the world around us that
you can’t hold us down
We have the Miss Stronger attitude showing we have the skills it takes to make it.
We are a group of beautiful fancy dancers bringing sexy back.
We are proud women who walk with out head up high
making sure we are seen always with power.
We are happy in taking one day at a time, in our healing journey.
We are powerful battered women showing those still struggling
that there is a life after abuse
We walk with our hearts so full of love, not feeling the cracks that were once there.
We are the survivors of abuse
Proving there can be life after
We walk today with a courage
never felt before,
and now that we have it –
There’s no turning back.
We are WOMAN
