Strong and Fearless

By RA

We are faced with new times. Our homes have become workplaces and schools. I know some days it may get the best of you but try to understand and believe you can overcome anything you’re faced with because you are strong and fearless women.

You’re the strongest people we know. You have overcome so much in your lives that I know, and I believe you will become even stronger and make the Best of these New Times!

When it gets hard on you, just take a step back and say to yourself…I’m a strong and fearless woman, who will not let these new times get the best of me 😊

You are fearless, strong and you have this.

    The message of your poem is so powerful. Everyone needs the reminder to stay strong and love themselves during these trying times. Your poem is inspiring and everyone relates to the message because we are all doubting ourselves and experiencing new struggles and stress. This is an amazing poem!

    Very empowering! I love the optimism that flows out of this poem. It’s amazing to take a break from the toxicity where women only know how to hate on other women.

    RA, I love how you used your poem to build others up, especially in a time like the present. Times are definitely changing and sometimes it is hard to keep up, but we can all do it and you reminded me of that today when I read your poem.

    This is so inspiring. The entire world has been affected by the numerous unprecedented events of the past year. It’s been hard for people, myself included, to keep going when things feel like they just keep getting worse. Sometimes it feels easier to give in to the sadness or overwhelmingness of this situation. But this is a great reminder that while all of this seems so new, we have all overcome obstacles in our lives, big or small, and this is no different. We have to keep reminding ourselves and the people around us that we are strong and we are fearless. Life may get bad at times but it will eventually get better again. Thank you for this reminder 🙂

    This poem was exactly what I have been needing lately. I live alone (my family lives out of state) and recently was dumped (on thanksgiving too, like come on haha), so I find myself doubting myself a lot and what I can do as a woman who really is alone. I will be saving your poem to read everyday to remind myself I am a strong and fearless woman, thank you.

    I love the fact that this poem doesn’t follow traditional formatting and it is very motivational. It seems as if the writer is speaking directly to the reader. Very powerful and encouraging.

    Very good poem…this spoke to me on another level because I am a woman myself and times have been particularly difficult with everything that is going on in the world. It is very uplifting to read this and know that hard times don’t last forever.

    I am sure this poem explains how a lot of people are feeling during these times. It is good and important to be reminded to take a break when it is necessary.

    RA,

    Wow, I really needed to read this poem today, and remind myself that “I’m a strong and fearless woman, who will not let these new times get the best of me!” You’re right, some days have definitely been getting the best of all of us, but if we step back, take a deep breath, then we will continue to march forward. I really love this poem, thank you for writing it! I’m looking forward to reading more from you!

    Dear RA,

    Wow, this poem really touched me. I don’t have my own family yet, but I am working as a teacher this year, teaching young children online. So I understand the feeling of my home becoming my workplace and a school. It is definitely new, unfamiliar, and sometimes tough. This is such a powerful, motivating, positive message — thank you for generously showing your support for others. I like your choice of capitalizing the words Best and New Times, to show their significance. This is wonderful and kind and the women in your life are lucky to have you.

    Sincerely,
    Joyce

    This poem is very inspiring for the difficult times we are all facing right now! I think it does a good job of leaving people with hope that things will get better, we just need to stay positive.

  15. Katherine on December 8, 2020 at 2:51 PM

    I absolutely love the empowerment and uplifting message of this poem. Very inspiring.

    Dear RA,

    Thank you for sharing this poem. It speaks so beautifully to the significant ways in which women contribute to holding things together in this time. It inspired me to offer similar encouragement to the women around me, and to be grateful for their efforts and contributions during this time when there is a bit more responsibility on everyone’s plate. Thank you for articulating this gratitude and empowerment so beautifully!

    Best,
    Joseph

    I am truly inspired by this poem you have created. You included so many inspiring and uplifting words that women need to hear. It can be difficult at times to remember our own greatness and the strength that we have. This poem can change the way women see themselves and boost their confidence. Thank you so much for spreading positivity during such a difficult time in this world. Best, Olivia R

    As a woman, this poem touched me! I loved the positive position that you have decided to take during tough times that we have gone through this year. It can be so hard to do that, but you are so strong. <3

    RA,

    This is just what I needed to read during these challenging times. It’s as if it was written for me by me, I relate to your words so deeply. I’ve been stressing and having extra anxiety about these new obstacles I have to face being stuck inside with nothing to do but work and school… but we are strong! I just hope this doesn’t become the new normal, but if it does I know we can overcome any obstacle. This pandemic will not win. I love this message and title. Thank you!!

  23. Samantha on December 18, 2020 at 4:46 PM

    RA,

    I am living for and LOVING this female empowerment in your poem! It’s so, so encouraging, and made my heart soar! Yes, we ARE #FearlessAndStrong, and I appreciate the reminder you give us through your words. I loved the line: “You have overcome so much in your lives that I know, and I believe you will become even stronger and make the Best of these New Times!” because there is so much power and truth in that statement. We have overcome a lot, but each day we become stronger and have made the best of the new reality that 2020 has brought us. I hope that you continue to write and inspire women with your poetry!

    Best,

    Samantha

    RA,

    Thank you for your encouragement! Our current circumstances are taxing, and we are discovering strength we did not know we possessed previously. We are more than our hardships. Keep using your words for good!

    Hey RA! This poem is so encouraging for me! Reading this makes me believe in myself and in these challenging times that I can do anything I set my mind to even in a “new time.” You have a way of making your reader feel like they have known you forever as if you are a comfort to others. Great writing, keep up the good work!
