Note: This poem is my response to the March for Women's Lives held in Washington D.C. on April 25th, 2004. Vox We stomped our feet all through the streets of D.C. Chanting, singing, demanding. Adolescent girls with Mohawks linked arms with heads of state. In crowds and metro stations we scanned for buttons and stickers That would identify us as sisters and brothers. We astounded ourselves by our sheer numbers, Inspired that so many others shared our vision. We waved our rainbow signs to any who would stop and see. We celebrated ourselves, each other. We renewed our strength so we could return home and Write letters, hold workshops, cry, make calls, Attend meetings, pay bills, raise funds, and hope That one day, others will carry on.
