Imagine a Woman

by Patricia Lynn Reilly

Imagine a woman who believes it 

is right and good she is a woman.  

A woman who honors her experience  

and tells her stories. Who refuses to 

carry the sins of others within her body 

and life.


Imagine a woman who believes  

she is good. A woman who trusts and respects herself. Who listens to her   

needs and desires, and meets them 

with tenderness and grace.

the present. A woman who has walked through 

her past. Who has healed into  the present.                                            

Imagine a woman who authors her own life. A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf. Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and to her wisest voice.

Imagine a woman who names her own gods. A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness. Who designs her own spirituality and allows it to inform her daily life.

Imagine a woman in love with her own body. A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is. Who celebrates her body and its rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who honors the face of the Goddess in her changing face. A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom. Who refuses to use precious energy disguising the changes in her body and life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life. A woman who sits in circles of women. Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets. Imagine yourself as this woman.
