This Body

This Body

is me

it is us

it is we

 

This body is mother

it is sister

it is lover

 

These arms have rocked children

These hips have rocked men

 

This mouth has screamed

“Justice”

When told to move, it replied

“No”

In the face of same, it demanded

“Change”

And in the dark it whispered

“Believe”

 

These legs have stood

on dirt

on tile

in heels

buckled at the knee

and marched in the streets

 

This body is me

it is us

it is we

This poem is about: 
Our world
