Women Warriors

We are women warriors,
whether it is grocery lines
or picket lines,
we are fighting the patriarchy
just by standing up
and being present in our lives.
Using our intuition,
crying together,
picking each other up,
lifting each other up from the ground
that burns to swallow us whole,
giving each other magnificent grace,
we are the goddess shamans
of our time.

We are the wise women,
shouting out our stories,
our traumas,
our aching scars,
out into the river,
making our world a better place
just by being aware of our
own bliss bodies and
each other’s power,
rising up together
like a storm.
