Force

Force

 
See me standing here
all colors of the earth and the sky after a storm? Take note:
I am a force.
 
Force is movement.
What you saw standing is now marching.
I surge forward, dragging my protests and uncertainty along for the ride
because I’m not waiting to figure it all out.
I’ve got now and I’m taking it.
 
See me.
 
See each color, see each culture, see each human dancing beneath my skin.
If you have to be scared, be scared,
but then get past it.
I was scared too at first, but now courage is my language. Speak it with me.
 
I am woman.
