From Goddess Initiation by Francesca de Grandis.
I have been knocked down and ridiculed. Lift me back onto my feet.
People have tried to shame me. Walk with me so that I can be proud.
They have tried to stop me from being healthy. Stand by me while I make myself whole.
They have tried to keep me from my power. Show me my power, which is inside me already, reflecting yours.
Thank you, Mother. Thank you, Father.
