The SGE team wanted to kick off Women’s History Month with a poem written by one of our team members, Zy Warren. This poem is a reminder that you are responsible for your own happiness and to encourage you to be confident in who you are.
As You Are
Be strong girl
But don't be too aggressive
Don't express your feelings too much
But be sure to listen to others and be receptive
Carry the weight of everyone's problems on your back like you don't have baggage of your own
Things that you're left to unpack in a dark room all alone
And when the world needs you it's your job to come through
But girl, do I have some things to tell you
Find your light and do whatever it takes to keep it shining
You'll fall down plenty of times along the way,
But make it your purpose to keep on climbing.
You aren't responsible for anyone's happiness but yourself.
Focus on your Faith, Intuition, Tenacity and most importantly your health.
Cause you only get one life, and now's the time to live it up
If it's not bringing you joy, say your farewell and give it up
Don't let anyone tell you, how you should be
If there's one thing I had to pick being great at,
I know for a fact I'm great at just being me
Happy Women's History Month!
