Woman of the Struggle

Woman, do you know your power?
Do you know how you change the game?
Delicate bodies are not of docile mind
Tensions rise and tensions fall at your command
Soft hands remove boulders
Strong hearts stand shoulder to shoulder
In a struggle where men wield guns
Mothers and sisters will make sons and brothers of us all
All is not lost, because you will always have your say
Just open your mouth
Let the cry come out
Escape the walls they built for you
Caged birds don’t sing
They peck and claw and fly with broken wings
Rose gardens are for the fortunate
Reality is for the survivors
They will never tear you down
And you will never rest in peace
