Thinking of all women facing injustices

flower woman

The woman in me cries

For the sisters abused and raped

For the mothers without choice

For the hatred the children may face


The woman in me breaths

She catches her breath

She looks up to the sky

She prays for courage and seeks for strength


The woman in me acts

She continues to search, she makes educated decisions, she fights

She searches for opportunities

She chooses wisely, and

She fights for her beliefs


The woman in me won’t give up

She will speak up

She will empower her sisters and daughters

She will choose love but not submission


The woman in me won’t silence, won’t faint, won’t succumb

The woman in me, the woman in you

We are all one: fighting, hiding, or silently hoping

For a better world, for equal opportunities, and for fair treatment
