An Ode to The Woman
by Seneca Moraleda-Puguan
This March, we celebrate one of the most beautiful creation – the woman.
The world we live in, with all the comparison and competition, with all the wrong definitions and expectations, has wounded the woman’s heart and marred her real beauty.
The society has broken her heart, destroyed her dignity, and scarred her soul. But we need to be reminded of who we are and what God has intended us to be. So, to every warrior princess, here’s an ode to you.
YOU ARE UNIQUE. You are one-of-a-kind.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
You are not defined by what others say.
You have a role that only you can play.
You have a purpose that is solely yours.
You have a calling that only you can fulfill.
Truly, dear one, you are like no other.
Unique, that’s what you are.
YOU ARE POWERFUL. You are strong and mighty.
Your strength is in your wisdom and grace.
You have the capacity to cause a change.
You have the power to make a difference.
You have a voice, let it be heard.
Don’t let it be silenced by the noise of the world.
The world’s history can be shaped by you.
A woman of valor, a warrior, that’s who you are.
YOU ARE CAPTIVATING. You are beautiful.
Your beauty is beyond what people can see.
You have an exuding charm, allure that is from within.
Society says otherwise but you must not listen to its lies.
Your body does not define you; it does not determine your value.
Do not compare yourself, do not try to imitate others.
Lovely, excellent, exquisite, charming and wonderful.
A masterpiece, exactly how God made you to be.
YOU ARE LOVED. You are adored.
Beloved, you are significant so please remember your worth.
You may have been scathed by other people’s unfair expectations,
You may have been rejected and brokenhearted countless times,
But despite these, you are precious, you are treasured.
You are fully known, gladly accepted and called His own.
Someone has laid down His life for you so you can be made whole.
Loved, truly loved, that is your identity.
May this ode be an encouragement to you, princess. May you be reminded of your identity. Know that you are unique, powerful, captivating and loved. Beloved You are worth celebrating every day. Beautiful one, shine!
