To Them, From Us

To those left unheard.
Your voice is strong.
You will find it.
I will hear you.

To those shoved aside.
Your body is invincible.
They cannot take what you do.
I will stand by your side.

To those they pretend are not worthy.
Your worth is yours.
Catcalls mean nothing.
We will be worthy together.

To those who’s bodies are no longer their own.
You will take back what is yours.
They have not the power you do.
We will take it back together.

For the injustice they create.
For the abortion clinics protested.
For the boys “just being boys”
For the women and girls expected to take it.

They will hear us.
We will go on.

This poem was inspired by the following prompt and a poem written by my friend Sarah that she showed me this morning about the Women’s March.
I have to admit to hesitating posting this, politics are not my thing and I’m not looking for hate. But if I can’t use this platform to express myself, then I might as well shut it down now.
