She doesn’t show us her strength, so we assume it doesn’t exist.
She shies away from the spotlight, we assume she has nothing to say.
She serves, relentlessly, so we assume she never feels weakness, pain or lethargy.
She gives birth with love, so we assume the agonising, nerve-wrangling pain is mild.
She chooses not to raise her voice, so we assume she can’t.
But when she roars, when she protects what she loves, when she decides to stand up and fight, all of life will fall at her feet.
Don’t take her for granted.
