Our Struggle

Posted by [email protected] on May 17, 2017 at 12:15 AM

They Say,

Those talking heads

On the television…

There is no war on women:

      “It’s lies!”

      “It’s the twisting of words!”

      “It’s your imagination!”

If all they say is true,

Then why don’t I believe them?


The redefining of rape…

Should I not be offended?

The restricting of contraception…

Am I not to control my body?

The recall of Roe vs. Wade…

Isn’t this my choice?


My daughters look to me

For endless inspiration

For standing for what’s right

For continuing the fight


I look to my daughters

For remembering the past

For honoring those before them

For continuing our progress
