A Woman’s Wisdom
In the dark hours we women have shown
our resilience, our resourcefulness, our courage.
We know when to be quiet and when to scream.
We know when to duck or stand up and fight.
We know when to let go or to stay.
We know when to hold on and when to let go.
We know when to love closely or from a distance.
We have learned the hard way.
Gathering our treasures from the dust,
retrieving our knowing from ashes.
This wisdom is ours,
carved into our bones, written into our cells,
shaping our memories and our voice.
So in the future, we can light a torch
in the dark hours of others.
