I May Not

By Anam Shaikh

I may not be strong enough to succeed in the first attempt

But I am strong enough to get up after I fail.

 

I may not be wise enough to think about the future

Bu I am wise enough to be content with my present

 

I may not be compassionate enough to build new relationships

But I am compassionate enough to cherish the ones I have.

 

I may not be able to conquer new lands

But I am as efficient as my male counterparts to conquer the workplace.

 

I may not be fearless enough to take the unbeaten path

But I am fearless enough to be happy with what I do.

 

I may not be loving enough towards strangers

But I am loving enough towards people I care about.

 

I may not be brave enough to take risks

But I am brave enough to make the most of what I have.

 

I may not be lavish enough in spending my money

But I am lavish enough in showing my emotions.

 

I may not have a big wallet

But I have a big heart.

 

I may not care about intangible things

Because I know what really matters is intangible.

 

I am a woman. Empowered.
