Poetry: Sing To All The Women

Oh I’d like to stop and sing

For my mother, my sister

That I too am free

One day I may have daughters

I’d like to sing to them of a world

Of passionate, unending love

That was inhuman in endurance and stamina

I’d like to sing to all the women who’ve been broken-hearted

Of the beauty within them and their everlasting grace

That they are adored by me and all lovers true

I’d like to sing to all the unborn girls floating in warm safe spaces

Of how grand and precious their future will be

That there are labcoats, and hardhats and uniforms waiting for them

Oh I’d like to stop and sing

For you dear readers

That you may bring

The world through parturition

Give birth to humanity’s new beginning

Ladies now let’s get in formation
