She is grounding.
She keeps it real with me, helps me to keep my feet on the kaupapa.
While seeing what could be daring greatly, choosing to stay in the arena I choose to show up for her, for me she is grounding.
Safe, secure, strong, smarts and heart.
She reminds me to be compassionate.
She is a compass of compassion pointing toward a path clarity because clarity is kind.
She is the brightest of shine. She is a gentle force.
Beautiful, wise, fierce friend, loyal till the soil like Papatuänuku, she is grounding.
