Purifying Fire

Written especially for Women of Worth
by Shonah Milne Melton

Woman of Worth do not emerge,
Out of a perfect life.

Each one creeps forth into light
Despite her challenges of strife.

We wrestle with ourselves,
To become the best we possibly can be.

Just as gold is refined,
We too must refine “me”-  through purifying fire.
