Cheers
to the women
who don’t want
to be cared,
protected,
and worshipped

Cheers
to the women
who don’t want
to be in the shadow,
shade and comfort
of patronage

Cheers
to the women
who dare question
the power, “prestige,”
and injustice
of patriarchy

Cheers
to the women
who choose to decide
what they want to do
with their bodies,
minds, and wombs

Cheers
to the women
who assert with will
their right to their life
and question the
sweet hypocrisy

Cheers
to the women
who don’t succumb to
the trapping temptations
and manipulatations
of patriarchal privilege

Cheers
to the women
who do stand up
fiercely for their truth
when the whole world
is busy judging them

Cheers
to the women
who don’t give up, bother
and do own what they do
with no apologies and
no fear of disapproval

Cheers
to the women
who are brutally honest
with themselves
away from zones of
comfort and status

Cheers
to the women
who live their lives,
chart their own path,
and traverse, following
their own rules

It is nobody’s
business
to judge them
and your
hypocritical
morality is
so flawed
to do so

Let their tribe grow❤
