I wrote this specifically for a young woman who is really struggling this week, but I’ve put it here because I believe it sentiments can be applied to so many of us at the moment, including myself.
You’ve got this
It may not feel that way today,
But I know you’ve got this.
You are a strong woman
who has faced so much against the odds
Of course you’ve got this!
I know you’ve been through the mill
You’re feeling wrung out,
defeated and done,
Your body keeping the score of your hurt
But I still believe – you’ve got this.
There is nothing that you cannot beat,
Nothing that can ever diminish
your worth in this world,
your potential, the you that you are meant to be
You’re so much stronger than you believe you are today
You’ve got this!
Take a look in the mirror, what do you see?
Eyes that have witnessed too much,
Windows on a soul that knows too much.
But now look again, look further,
look deeper… until you see, until you find
that inner strength,
that solid core.
That’s there, that’s waiting
Deep within your being.
This is what will see you through.
You see a broken woman before you
But look now at the steel within her eyes
And tell her out loud and just believe
‘You’ve got this’.
