This poem is a part of the Sister Series, a series of celebrating individual women and sharing their beauty through poetry.


By Regan Smith

She will be known for her beauty,
her tenderness;
a floodlight is bursting within,
illuminating even the darkest corners;
for where others won’t go,
she will.

Oh how the city can be cold,
but is softened by the wave of
compassion and encouragement.

Peach and pinks now light up
the night, for not even the stars
could create this alchemy.

But she won’t dwell on her
internal strength,
rather is drawn into the
eternal promises.
