The Society of Femmes, Inc.

                                                                                                         
The Society FEMME moves through the world
with a sense of confidence and
grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet
firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she
leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live
and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has
a strong, yet open heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets
her apart.
Like the Hummingbird,
she migrates around the world and
soars to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once that
posed such resistance.

Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so
clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees;
beckoning her to
live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands

and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she
has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet
fruits of life,
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife.

And the one thing she never understood,
she now knows to be true,

it all begins and ends with the FEMME in you.
