Orange Words: Of a Pearl Who Thought She Was Mud

Turn up the volume of your life's music and let the world dance to the rhythm of a life well lived. A Poem inspired by a need to empower women.

You are the whole expanse of the glorious night sky;

magnificent by nature, majestic to behold,

but all your dazzling stars have been hidden by clouds of insecurity

You are God’s love song to the world

the greatest ballad ever,

a melody made of stardust

but you’ve turned down your volume

and the world can’t hear your lyrics

 

You are a pearl,

everything bright, brilliant, and beautiful

but you’re hidden within an oyster shell of fears

lost in a monstrous sea of self-doubt

You are the center of God’s most central thoughts,

the most vivid dream of the universe,

a miracle created to create miracles,

the seed of a great oak tree waiting to bloom into a forest

so bloom Darling

 

Burst out from the oyster shell of fears

that is too small to contain your big pearl of dreams

breakaway from clouds of insecurity

that have nothing on your array of stars of possibility

turn up the volume of your life’s music

and let the world dance to the rhythm of a life well lived.
