What’s In a Name? ~ #wwwblogs

Choice is a powerful force for transformation
taking a dilemma
existential at its best
and shifting it
into a young woman’s voice
once cautious, nearly timid
emerging
from the name a man gave her
into the name she has chosen
stepping into her power
a reckoning
held before open ears
crossing the lines
constructed for her
with grace
and bravery
and a refusal
to back down ~ Caroline A. Slee

For my daughter, today, on making a big change she has wanted for years.

Blessings to you all.
