This is for the one

I found this poem attached to a bracelet I bought for my youngest daughter at Christmas.  The poem caught my attention perhaps even more than the bracelet.  There is no author attributed to it and none that I could find on the Internet, either.

What I love about the poem is its unconditional stance of acceptance.  It honors all of us, those who sit quietly on the side lines all the way to those who go on and live out loud in a big way.  No one is bigger or better than the other.

Here’s the poem:

This is for the one who has
found her way, and the one who is still searching

For the one who counts her blessings, and who is a
blessing to others.

This is for the dreamer, and the dancer, and the music maker.

For the ones brave enough to jump, and the ones still
standing on the edge.

This is for the one who takes the path, and for the one who
creates her own.

For the one who fights,
believes, creates, and inspires.

This is for you.
