Happy International Women's Day! I prefer to ingest and digest the world through writing.

I wrote the poem called Hey for women a couple years ago, and hope you find some words in here worth carrying on your journey.

Hey

I’ve noticed a painful pattern on this planet, maybe you’ve seen it too.

A pattern that is quilted into the seams of far too many girls in this world.  

I have met too many who have never heard “I love you”Too many who have never been held, hugged, or touched appropriately.

Little girls left alone, on their own, to fend for themselves. They climb into their minds to try and find an alternate reality; busy creating a make-believe family.

They wonder if the way they are treated and mistreated is the way life is supposed to be.

Is life really supposed to feel this cold and empty?  Is this all life has to offer me?

If that’s you, if you can identify in any way.

Hey…

I know I've never met you, but I met the One who made you.

He told me to tell you, that you've been on His mind.

I know I've never met you, but I met the One who made you.

He told me to tell you, despite everything your facing and how you’re feeling, you’re going to be just fine.

I know I've never met you, but I met the One who made you.

He told me to tell you that whenever you need Him, and even when you think you don't, He has plenty of time.

Allow me share something Heaven-sent; a beautiful, purple, lavender, scent.

Like open-road railroads where lilacs grow underneath the tracks.

Places where trains only travel by the glow of the moon.

Would you open your heart and give Him some elbow room, for these seeds of truth to bloom.

Hey

I know I've never met you, but I met the One who made you and He told me to tell you:

He’s always been there He’s been there for everything you’ve ever faced, He was there during all the battles fought on tear stained pillows until tear ducts ran out of ammunition.  

He heard every single sob.

He felt every single drop.

This world has been trying to pick at you and sift you since birth.

The fact that you’re still here is proof - you are way stronger than you think.

He says all those who thirst for real love come, come and drink.

I know I’ve never met you but I’ve met the One who made you and He told me to tell you:

Bring your worry.

Bring your beauty.

Bring your stress.

Bring all the unanswered questions.

Bring the past that hurts you, the thoughts that haunt you. The future that paralyzes you,

Bring it, bring it all!

Because the Creator of this universe is crazy in love with you.

When it came to special, He specialized in making you.  

He placed from His pallet the particular particles in your make up that require no make- up.

The same mighty hand that crafted the clouds and hung the stars in the skies, placed precisely the right shade in your eyes.

Massage the message in your mind every morning before your feet hit the floor

The creator of this universe is crazy in love with you. He loves you he loves you he loves you, let the truth of his love beat in your heart all day.

And hey, I know I’ve never met you but I met the one who made you and he told me to tell you.

He has always loved the little girl inside you more than anyone ever could.

You should love her too.
