Taking Back…..

Sugar and Spice
everything nice
that is what girls are made of.
Hell no 
we won’t go.
Leave us our rights
our abilities.
Since the inception of time
men have stood
swinging their clubs
making women sheep.
Finally now
hear us roar
a woman’s movement on the rise.
No longer shall we be silenced
tied up
beaten into submission
our voices will rise.
Glass ceiling
shattering
shards of glass spew down
shredding those
who have stood here
using power to get their way.
Fear the night
looming shadows within
for come time
women will surge
darkness will be overcome.
Women will never ever
have to run again.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
