Fly

In Love… & Solidarity…

Darkness falls
Across the country
A bitter pill to swallow
As he steps forward,
Arm raised
Standing
With my sisters
We prepare to fight
With foreboding
A task that seems
Too great
Suffragettes
Fought before us
Leading the way
Into
The light
Now
It is our turn
To make a stand
Against tyranny
Misogyny so fierce
It threatens to erase us
From existence
We must
Together
Stand against a hate
That burns like fire
Soar above
The violence & rhetoric
Show the world
We will not fade away
Teach our little sisters
To fly
