What would you like to own, that is truly yours?
I hope you own everything you wish for under the sky
But ownership of material objects rarely does anyone satisfy
You might own your business, your precious venture
That you invest yourself in, with pride you nurture
But external forces beyond your control or vision
May sometimes your prized business threaten
You might own a pet, but no one can fully own
Another living creature- you might find yourself left alone
If you own someone’s trust, that is good for you,
I sincerely hope you can carry it through
So coming back to the original question posed by me
What could you possess and make yours, actually?
I think the one thing we all should strive to own
Is our unique voice, the one that belongs to us alone
In a world that distracts us with its ever- increasing noise
We need to work harder to find our voice..
There is something for all of us women to remember
When we own our voice, we own our power
Then we can expand and help others find
Their voices too, so we all speak our minds..
Just own your voice if nothing else you own
Armed with it, you can venture into the unknown.
