Mantra of an Amazing Woman

This poem was written by Lana Lodge, a Carleton University Computer Science undergraduate student (photo)

I am an amazing woman
I love myself
I trust myself
I respect myself
I forgive myself

I have unlimited power inside me
Because I have integrity
Because I am a woman who knows what I know
And I am the only one who can know
What I can do

I work for what I want
My body is strong
My mind sharp
I treat myself
My spirit is whole and happy
I honour my experiences
With the people around me
I honour myself
I honour those around me

I am an amazing woman
I love myself
I trust myself
I respect myself
I forgive myself

I will rise above all of the noise
I will rise above all those who are disrespectful
They want to use me
They want to break me
Make an example of me
To satisfy their egos

I will get myself what I deserve
I will never settle for less
Because I am a woman who knows
How to take care of herself
I bless my heart
I bless my dreams
I’m powerful, gracious
I say what I mean

I am an amazing woman
I accept opportunity
I accept entitlement
I accept a bigger paycheque
I accept love
I let myself be loved
It overflows from me
I love myself
I trust myself
I listen to my gut instinct
I know what feels right
I banish what feels wrong

I search for new opportunities
To test myself
To grow
To learn
Take on new roles
See new dimensions

I am an amazing woman
I have this will
To learn to know
I have this world to help me grow
I have these arms
To build my path
They will not stop
They won't look back
I have this love that's burning bright

I am strong
And I can fight
With all these things I have in me
I could move the earth
I could calm the sea
I'll take this world and make it mine
I'll let love flow
I'll let love shine
And the Goddess in me says "It's about time".
I am an amazing woman
