I am a mother and no one's wife -- not anymore.
I am bold, fierce and strong -- even when I feel weak.
I am sensitive, kind and generous -- although I am not to myself.
I pave my own way -- and make my own path.
I walk forward and rarely backward -- my head always high.
I am feminine and sexy -- and once in a while I strut.
I am a nature-lover and nurturer -- and need some in return.
And tomorrow I turn 50 -- and that's pretty great!
