What do you think
Your threats, shaming, and endless discrimination can do
I can speak, oh yes, and
My courage is infinitely greater than your underestimation.
Because I’m not alone, I’m strong,
I consist of the million women of this country,
I am a single breathing creature of these thousand voices.
Try drowning my dignity,
With all the raping, abuse, feticide, and the rest of that endless list and
I will fight back, equally strong,
In the moral way, I have substance-
I’ll rise higher every time you shove me down,
I am a being with every ounce of the capacity you think I lack.
I lack nothing and
I’m proud of what I am; don’t try making me ashamed because
You won’t succeed.
Shame on you! You’ve made people feel scared of
Our country with all
Your sexist crimes.
Lastly Darling, don’t forget that
I make this world whole every bit as you do;
I am your
Mother, sister, lover, stranger, and friend,
A person you can’t avoid knowing.
So here’s the treaty:
