Here’s to the women
Who lift each other up
Drag each other down.
Here’s to the women who aren’t too cool to snort-laugh,
Who aren’t too guarded to show their whole souls,
Who aren’t too scared to lead the way by
Here’s to the women who fight the good fight,
Every Damn Day
for other women to feel just as seen and heard
As they deserve to be.
Here’s to the acquaintances, the besties, the soulies,
and the strangers
Who delight in giving compliments,
Here’s to the woman
Who bares her soul and tells her truth
But never at the expense of others
and certainly not at the expense of herself.
Here’s to the women,
Every Single Woman,
Because only together
are we able to
Move Forward Fearlessly.
