Empowerment

Why do we need empowerment?

 

There have been humans who

came out of her body

Without as much as a whiff of

medicine.

 

And she has sat through every

stare,

Consciously adjusting the length of

her skirt,

Because she didn’t ask for it.

 

She’s made three meals a day

And bought the bread too

She’s changed the diaper and

mended

A broken heart or two.

 

So why do you stand there and call her weak?

Why does she call herself weak?

 

We don’t need you to give us a voice.

 

If I can stand on my own two feet, I can destroy on my own two feet.

So tell me again,

 

Why do we need empowerment?
