I could look at you in envy
For all the things you have,
The ease with which you cope,
Your luck when things get bad.
But I look at you for courage,
You’re my teacher and my friend.
I look at you and learn from you that i can try to change,
Turn my struggles into chances and reach up for the skies.
I see the work you’ve put in and i see the dues you’ve paid,
And your graceful acceptance, when all you try just fails.
I see that every chance you’ve got you’ve carved out for yourself,
And I look at all of you in awe…my teachers and my friends.
… this poem was inspired by all of the wonderful women i know, who’ve succeeded. In making time for their families, their careers and for themselves. In doing all the things they do with commitment & with joy.
