~ Orchid ~

note: this ink is inspired by my favorite poem
“for women who are difficult to love”
written by Warsan Shire
~ link below ~

some women are like an orchid
volatile and vulnerable
and delicate



they just need
special love and care
and more so understanding

their fragile hearts are hurt
neglected and rejected
scolded and judged

let me tell you this:

your sensitivity is a gift
you are loving and caring

your intensity is a flame
you can set your life on fire

your impulsivity is a journey
that leads to great adventures

your complexity is a rainbow
that colours this existence

your crazy mind is inimitable
gifted with infinite creativity

your emphatic spirit is priceless
in a world that needs compassion

your scars are important reminders
of the fact that you’re a survivor

your mood swings are reflections
of the natural rhythm of life

you are a precious orchid
you are beautiful and gorgeous
you are uniquely and deeply divine

let no one ever tell you otherwise!
