VOF Call 8 Group Poems

Stephanie Auxier
Posted April 18, 2016 from United States

Dear Leaders, here are the poems we created together during our last calls. These poems show that when we come together, we can create something powerful and beautiful. As you finish your assignments, I hope you will revisit these poems as a reminder of the ways we are connected and the ways we impact each other!

Poem created on Wednesday night's call:

Women of Courage

Listen, open up to something big, take a moment, share.

I embrace the far reaches of the world through women of courage.

Time flies by and, one way or another, we will create change together.

I am a bright shining star and a bright light says the universe,

The fresh breath of new knowledge inspired my being as it opened spaces for light to flow and allowed me to blossom.

Rough edges and thorns mare my way but I see light at the far end calling.

Broken hearts. Beautiful colors. It is through our tears that we create rainbows...and together we brighten and strengthen this world.

The sun penetrates the darkness that engulfed me, freedom at last.

I rise from the ashes that defined me before,

Blossoming with light, even the lowly servants shall rise to serve the nations of the world.

Poem created on Friday's call:

The Road Was Deserved

This is the time I have, you have, we have been waiting for.

In the faraway land I see women dancing and rejoicing because their voices were heard.

My heart will stay connected with other hearts wherever Mother Earth placed them,

Taking a leap into the unknown, guided by light and a sense of what is possible.

Truly a life changing experience, you have just given me the wings I needed to fly, to fly towards my vision

The spirit within me has been ignited, each step I take, is a step closer to my dream.

Heart expanding in the company of other female warriors

Moving is a sail, and it needs direction

I am the captain, taking a new dimension.

The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter with each step I take, my steps are hope for many,

No longer afraid of the fork in the road I go right.

Like an alphabet, I am free. Free from darkness.

Women are the stars who light the sky and candles which bring hope and sunshine everywhere.

The future looks bright, and I press on with confidence - empowered to succeed!

A click, a like, a share away to empower,

Empowered by World Pulse to empower others who will power the pulse of the world.

Fire on my back? No, but on the edge of my seat, excited, motivated, energized

From a story that broke your heart to a future that makes you smile, the road was deserved.

    Hello Stephanie. How lovely of you to compiled our voices in to such great poems. When I saw my lines I was oozing with joy. "I am a bright shining star and a bright light says the universe


    Blossoming with light even the lowly servants shall rise to serve the nations of the world".

    Thanks a lot.This simply act shows the power of our "little bits" to change the world.Its the power of our collective little voices that echoes from all the corners of the world that are changing lives---- and the world. Kuja.
