The one that’s a little different 

You get broken down to the very essence of yourself 

You are the phoenix rising from the ashes

You’re sure you don’t have the strength

You do

You are a warrior

How could you have ever been afraid?

There are galaxies in your eyes

Life in your fingertips

Strength in your bones; mixed with dust that was dead until life was breathed on it 

And there you were

Fully formed

An ezer warrior

An eshet Chayil 

A woman of valor 

Rise up and walk

Come forth out of your tomb

Don’t you hear him calling you?

“Daughter” he says

“Come forth, I have work for you to do. 

That mountain?

Needs leveling

That ocean?

Needs calming

That city?

Needs healing

Take what’s in front of you 

It’s already yours 

My strength has been made perfect in your weakness.”

Weakness is strength 

Fear is joy

Last is first

 I stand up

Pick up my sword and go

I’ve got things to do
