When Your Spirit’s Weak…A Poem for Empowerment

Did you wake up today with a weak spirit? Has the ebb and flow of work and weekend exhausted your emotions? If you’re moving through life mechanically, it’s time for lift. Take a moment (or more) to make a shift happen in your heart. Do whatever it takes to reclaim your empowerment. Know that you have something awesome to do in this life. Here’s a poem I wrote for myself and for you. Because we all need a boost sometimes…

A Poem for Empowerment 

From dust to flesh,

Womb to world

The birth of you,

A soul unfurled


Garden of Self,

A zealous sprout

In harshest rain

In fiercest drought


Leaves lift high

For sun and air

Roots find soil

Soul seeks care


You are beauty

You are light

You are wings

In spirit flight


You are branch

You are tree

You are grounded

You are free


You are mystery

You are might

You are ray of

Earth’s own light


You are sand

You are sea

You are breath of

    Love! “You are light” is so representative of how we can approach life in so many positive ways. Be light-hearted. Bring light to the room with your positivity. Be light and kind in your words. So lovely.
