Women of Courage by Sherri Lupton Hollister 

For all the women who have touched my life 

Happy Mother’s Day!
Women of courage

Women of valor

Your timeless wisdom

Enables me

To stride through life

My head held high

Knowing that I am descended from thee.
Native woman scraping the earth

Share-cropper’s daughter in patches

Dreams take flight on the tail of a kite.

Roots in black soil still hold them,

The river, the sun and the dirt,

I am a part of it

It is a part of me.
I am my mother’s daughter.

Rosie the Riveter

Humble Christian

Boisterous lady of daring,

River woman

Service man’s wife

Toil, tinker, and strife.
Woe to woman

To bear a child,

Sorrow, the lot

To bury one.
Woman of valor

Woman of courage

Your tears

Your smiles 

They move me.

Yours are our memories

Our songs

and

Our stories 

It is to you we lift our voices and cry.

Women of my family

Women of my life

You have given me courage, valor and strength.

I am

Because of You!
