Who is She?

Hello, it’s a good day for a poem, don’t you think? I wrote this just for you.

Who is She?
By Cheryl Hunter

Who is She?
Who is that one who
     refuses to be compliant
     refuses to be silent
     refuses?
Who is She?
Who is that girl who
     dreams of being greater
     which may be just a dream
     dreams?
Who is She?
Who is that woman who
     rose to the challenge
     only to be shamed
     wilts?

And who are you?
     Doubting her
     suppressing her
afraid.
And who are you?
     Eyeing her
     objectifying
disrespecting.

Who is She?
She is the one who
     Carried you
     Nursed you
     Fed you
     Loved you
     Held you
     Stood BEHIND you
     Now BESIDE you.

And, again, who are you?
