we - women

Jennifer Monaghan

how thankful am i that we -
women -
can now stand on our
own without the strength
of tenthousandmen holding us up?
how grateful am i
that we no longer bow
entirely to the will of a man?
they still command, beat,
slaughter the bodies the spirits of
some, still rape and murder and
strangle, still wage war and still
try to push us down
the difference between then
and now…
between 1967 or 57
or 47 and now
the difference is that we

the difference is that we -

women - can finally push back!
how thankful am i?
how grateful am i?
i REJOICE! and
shout out my gratitude to
the mothers and grandmothers
before me who fought this battle
and paved the way for me and
my daughters
for it is expected no more
that we endure quietly the
suppression and oppression of
male dominance.
we - women - can rule our own
houses companies families HEARTS
never more to be those
moving to the motions of men!
