Poem: The Power of a Woman

By mbThewriter

She can’t stand sexism
but she fell in love
with men who wear capes to sleep
and call themselves feminists.

Love is her middle name,
but she won’t bite into the candy
she receives from a man who shouts,
“I am declaring the wage gap is over,”
especially when none she has met
have participated in a bill with a yea or nay.

She can’t stand sexism
but she fell in love
with her law degree
including decaf coffee and acetaminophen,
with her rallies during town halls
including her sorority sisters
marching beside her.

She, is Power.
She, is a Woman.
A woman grants herself power when she learns to love
her reflection and trust each word she delivers.
