My WOW of the day, the floetry of Rha Goddess reminding all of the ladies to know their worth.

Know Your Worth

Written by Rha Goddess

“You Deserve the Best”
That’s why my mother always stuffed
An extra $5 in my bobbie socks
For bubble gum, sweet tarts, fire balls and lollie pops
Candy coated love turned
“buy yourself something nice” money
“just in case you see something you like” money
“later for him—he’s acting funny,
Girl-u-betta-get-home-safe” a/k/a—mad money
a next level security deposit on “your own pad honey!” money

Ladies, you know…
The Protection…..
That watchful mother hens dole out
When they breed
Risk takers
Planetary Movers-Shakers
I’m talking about
Bold Women
Who kick the shards of glass ceilings out from underneath their stilettos
And hum lullabies to their sons and daughters in the latest tune
Of Rhiana
I’m talking ‘bout
Courageous Women
Who don’t take “No” for an answer

Who keep their eyes on the prize
But never forget they’re on the road less travelled

I’m talking—Empowered Women
Who will seize their moment of (r)evolution
Put it all on the line—not just to build a venture
But to spark the next feminine movement

To all my women…
Supa-dupa fly women…
Do whatever it takes to make it happen
Right Now! women
On this auspicious DailyWorth occasion
These are my wishes for you

May your dollars never outweigh your sense
May you always understand that the endgame is liberation
And may you forever Know Your Worth
From the inside-out!

Thank you @DailyWorth and @RhaGodddess for bringing us this beautiful ‘floetry’.
