You may see me struggle,
but you won’t see me fall.
Regardless if I’m weak or not,
I’m going to stand tall.

Everyone says life is easy,
but truly living it is not.
Times get hard,
people struggle
and constantly get put on the spot.
irinareichertphotographyboudior-22pintopinterestI’m going to wear the biggest smile
even though I want to cry.
I’m going to fight to live,
even though I’m destined to die.

And even though it’s hard
and I may struggle through it all,
you may see me struggle…
but you will NEVER see me fall.

There’s a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man’s hands,
Safely secluded in a far away land
Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder
The wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
Kids fashion pintopinterestI go alone to my secret place, never leaving a trace
For someone to follow and discover my space
Where I keep my secrets, my fears, and my regrets
Away from the world and all of its threats.
It’s mine and mine alone!
The only place I can call my own.
I treasure the moments spent in this realm
Where anything is possible and I’m at the helm.
This place I describe is all that it seems …
It’s a magical place I call my dreams.

                I walk into a room Boudoir 
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or

boudoir photography pintopinterestFall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,

irinareichertphotographyboudior-19pintopinterestIt’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.

irinareichertphotographyboudior-17pintopinterestI’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

irinareichertphotographyboudior-30pintopinterestNow you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.

Phenomenal womanpintopinterestWhen you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,

irinareichertphotographyboudior-16pintopinterest‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

    

I have the fire inside. It burns bright and hot, it is hard not to notice it, not to be inflamed. Unstoppable, rebellious, unconstrained, uncontainable… You must be death and blind not to see it, not to feel it. I play the song of my fire with my every step … every breath … every beat of my thirsty for life heart. You must be death not to ever hear it.

I am unstoppable today.

You may no longer keep me prisoner… make me beg to breath… keep me loosing myself drop by drop… year after year…I will play my song vivid, loud, brave, glaringly … No, empty days filled up with rot are not about me…

I take my last step… the step over you…

Irina Reichert PhotographypintopinterestI’ve learned- that you can keep going long after you can’t.
I’ve learned-
that we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
violin playerpintopinterestI’ve learned-
that either you control your
attitude or it controls you.

that two people can look at
the exact same thing
and see something totally different.

Two girls partake of afternoon tea  Princess Tea Party Princess Tea Party
Under willow trees and pleasant weather 
Dolly’s join them, splendid gowns, sentry ready
Social graces with porcelain clean white faces

While princess détente takes place
Young ladies soak orange pekoe leaves
Savor the hot flavor afterwards
Princess Tea PartypintopinterestSip it warm at leisure through the day
At party pleasure and perfect play
Nuclear proliferation weighs heavy on their minds
As well as gun violence and big people crimes

The two dollies do too
