Celebrating Womanhood

For all the women in the world – sisters, mothers, daughters, and wives:

Blessed be my brain
that I may conceive of my own power.

Blessed be my breast
that I may give sustanence to those I love.

Blessed be my womb
that I may create what I chose to create.

Blessed be my knees
that I may bend so as not to break.

Blessed be my feet
that I may walk in the path of my highest will.
