With all these wonderful discussions going around I thought it might be nice to share some of our favorite stories, poems, books etc…
These can be inspirational for women, written by women, or written about women. Please post links or snippets of you can so people can get to know your favorites. *cuts ribbon*
Also stay tuned for the music and TV / Movies threads!
I’ll start off with one of my favorite poets, Emily Dickenson. Not only is she a female poet writing in a time where most writers were male, but she has also written some beautiful verses that I find inspirational. Here is one of her shorter works:
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Next I’ll share a poem about women that I really love.
Beautiful Women by Fion Lim
come out and play,
reveal your inner treasures.
The sparkle in your eyes,
the natural swing in your walk,
you radiate excitement and enthusiasm.
You need no latest fashion,
No expensive hair cuts,
No blinding big accessories.
You glow in your passions,
passionate in your pursuits,
you know what you are made of.
You are not easily bothered,
by the mindless opinions of others,
you know very well where you want to go.
you are a joy to watch,
an inspiration to others,
your pure soul an endless marvel.
let your brilliance shine through,
your eyes speak of true inner beauty.
