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.
