THE YEAR OF THE WOMEN
Arise to the challenge and learn your name, learn your worth
Do not be fooled by the oppressed minds in literature.
The ones that must feel the need of control, power, and self-assurance.
You are more then what is portrayed and your capacity has an endless growth that has yet to be defined.
As stated be meek and humble but not weak
Stand up for your equality and individuality
Be the first to define The Women
Be the first to carry the burdens of the nation on your back
Release the barrens of doubt and hopelessness
You are to be great no matter the surrounding gestures
No one has seen the true greatness in you
A cap has been placed upon you, bottling up your dignity inside of a canister
You have been fed fallacies after fallacies
Suffocating the growling belly that hunger and yearns for its limitless potential
You know not because you don’t ask…. You settle
Settle for the life in the shadows beneath those that follow
Things are not as they seem and you are not following the higher power’s of destiny or dreams
Who will nurture those who can not do for themselves
Speak to all those who will listen
Hear us Roar!!!
