Dear Fighter, You Have Come This Far

By Onozasi

Hey babe,

There is so much you have done so far. You have come this far. You have cried, you have carried your shoes, buckled it and ran the race. You have changed the status-quo, you have carried yourself to places you never thought you could get to. When they came at you and said you would break down, you stood strong and defied their assumptions. You didn’t allow anyone or anything clap you back, you handled all your issues and came out with a smile even when you cried hard. Did you know that those times you were confused, perturbed, you still gave an helping hand to those in need forgetting about your own self. Their matter became your matter and their smile automatically changed yours. Oh, what about those people who judged you from afar? Those people who didn’t bother to get close to you but tagged you a bitch, called you a bitter woman? they didn’t get you to step down on your drive, they became your push to be more. You gave them the gist to talk about and they later understood that you were just one principled woman who wanted the best for everyone within your reach.

Hey, what about days when it seemed like everything was crumbling? Days when you couldn’t find the strength for the next day but somehow you stood up, you got up, you braced up. How did you carry on? you can’t  find the answer to the question but you moved. Something keeps telling you that there is a woman out there waiting for you to be strong for her, a child who sees you as the ray of light, glimpse of hope. You couldn’t afford to be down for those people so their thoughts gave you the strength you needed for days. 

What Now?

They are forgetting to check up on you. They are almost forgetting that you are human too… You need a place to draw your strength. You need a place to rest your head. You need someone to tell you that you have come too far to let it go. Yes! Dear Warrior woman, you have come too far to let it go. You are an Amazon, a Citadel of Good Knowledge  but you are frail now, you need space to feel like a child now but you don’t want to be seen as weak.

Hey babe, do it! Cry it out, laugh it out, take some wine, whip your hair back and forth, lie down on the floor, put those legs on your table. You can be the girl you want to be. You are permitted to show forth your frail moments, talk about it. You are permitted to let them know that you are human too, share your moments with them. Go for a walk, go on a holiday, rejuvenate, explore and feel refreshed. 

I hope you would see this and remember that you are not forgotten. You are doing absolutely well.

    This is soothing. You really don’t understand what you have done to a lot of us. Just when I felt i have been terribly stressed, i saw this and i smiled. I am letting my head down. I have come this far. Thank you for sharing.
