Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about women.  Cheers!

Being a woman.
What does it mean?
A person of strength.
A person of dreams.
We are vulnerable and yet.
Able to withstand pain like no other.
Able to heal like no other.
Able to empathize like no other.
Yet we are victims.
Often dependent for love.  For worth.
Often mere reflections of our mate.
Stand strong.  Stand alone.
We are woman.
Independent and strong.

I will prevail…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about fear and trust.  Cheers!

I fear.
But you are with me.
I fear…but the fear is less.
The memories haunt me.
Memories of my fear.
I have feared so much in the past.
Faced my fear alone.
Now I have you.
My fear subsides.
You are strong.  You are good.
The strong and the good shall prevail.
I know this in my heart.
I stand strong beside you.
I hesitate with my weakness.
With courage I strengthen my resolve.
You are with me.  Courageous and strong.
You stand with me.
I will prevail.
