The Theta Woman
Loyal to the cocoon from where she comes,
The Theta Woman rises out of a lavender dawn
To proudly bridge the gaps in her world
With her butterfly wings.
With honesty and courage,
She lives and loves without condition
Surrendering to her beauty and power,
She gives and receives freely
Remembering her vision, her purpose, her heart
Creator of her own definition
She inspires those around her to be proud and selfless,
To give unselfishly over and over again.
Loving herself as she loves others,
The butterfly transcends –
Taking others with her in her flight.
