Woman of Steel

Christine Ray – getting in touch with the inner badass

Brave & Reckless

I have never accepted

the limitations

of being merely human

imagine myself invincible


body’s rebellion does not sit well

on shoulders I viewed stone

I fight rage


as I struggle to maintain balance

on the small square

refusing to be defeated

by such an unworthy enemy

I breath deep

think about my roots

shooting into the floor

breaking through the ground

remind myself that I am the Ginkgo




draw strength


from the soil

up into my spine

liquid metal


remember what it is like to be me



a warrior

at least for this moment
