She's Ok




photo by me, southwest, mn

in the dark of day, 
she's ok, she's ok
in the midst of confusion and wandering,
she's ok, she's ok
in her time of exhaustion and pain,
she's ok, she's ok
when she's abandoned and no one is listening,
she's ok, she's ok
in her moments of weakness, 
she's ok, she's ok
if she's full of fear,
she's ok, she's ok
in sickness and trials,
she's ok, she's ok
in times of apathy,
she's ok, she's ok
in tears, shouting, and meltdowns
she's ok, she's ok
when days are long and saddness follows,
she's ok, she's ok
when she's all alone, or afraid,
she's still ok, she's ok

her feelings or days don't knock her down,
or pick her up,
she is steady, 
with or without those
unreliable things.

she is not thrown off,
she fights for peace,
and security,
and beholds what is true.

This is beautiful and I can completely relate to it. I feel the same way as this woman in your poem. Strong, resilient, and peaceful.

So beautiful. Such a great reminder that through it all, we are ultimately OK. Gotta keep things in perspective and look at the bright side. Hope you're doing OK. :)
