I March For Equality, Dignity & Peace — I March For You Because I Am You

WOMEN

By Laura Phoenix Power

I march for the time your soul was stung by your family’s rejection,
I am you.

I march for the time your vagina was violently grabbed by a stranger on a sidewalk, I am you.

I march for the time you were teased for being too black or too white,
I am you.

I march for the time your dialect or your family’s dialect was mocked,
I am you.

I march for the time your teenaged boyfriend’s fist gave you a bloody lip,
I am you.

I march for the time you were being strangled by a stranger before fighting to escape,
I am you.

I march for the time you chose an abortion in order to save your life,
I am you.

I march for the time you sacrificed to obtain an education,
I am you.

I march for the time kids look at you to define a woman’s worth,
I am you.

I march for the time broken adults raped you and decimated your childhood innocence,
I am you.

I march for the time he looks at your breasts instead of you face during conversation,
I am you.

I march for the time your ability was dismissed because of your gender,
I am you.

I march for the time you needed the freedom to reject or select a religion,
I am you.

I march for the time missed with your kids because you work endless hours to afford healthcare,
I am you.

I march for the time, “nice ass” was hissed out of a car driving by,
I am you.

I march for the time in college you realized upon awakening you’d been drugged the night before,
I am you.

I march for the time you were told, “Shut the fuck up and know you place, bitch,”
I am you.

I march for the time you remained silent, paralyzed by fear for yourself or your family,
I am you.

I march for the time you grew strong and walked away from unhealthy people,
I am you.

I march for the strength, faith and hope needed to fight injustice,
I march for you.

I march for those without equality, dignity and peace,
I march for you.

I march for those who are not ready, able or strong,
I march for you.

I will always march for you.
