This poem is by Erin Hanson not E. Hemingway.

But it's you that holds the pen. This hit me like a ton of bricks. So powerful.

I've been wanting to share this poem with you for ages but I couldn't find  the source.  I hunted high and low to try and find the elusive e.h but had no luck and  then yesterday I miraculously came across her place and now I'm so happy to  share Erin's beautiful words which should be dedicated to all our daughters  and so it is.  Erin Hanson I salute you fine lady.   ::source::

If I were to be so bold as to edit E. I would remove the last line to dispell the morbidity of an excerpt which already breathes so much life.
