Trying to make sense of my cluttered thoughts this International Women’s Day.
Is femininity to my advantage? How has being a women created my identity? Are women actually represented equally? How are women perceived in society? It’s 2019. Let’s throw them/him/the workforce/our government a curveball:
Reel in your worth.
Do not dance gently on the ground of this earth.
Treading softly will only lead to stop signs.
A muted voice from the sidelines.
So march heavy and make room.
Gather your buds, for they are soon to bloom
Into shapes and colors this world has yet to see.
Because after all, I don’t need anyone to validate me.
