Anybody else feel really empowered to take over the world after hearing the various speeches at the women's march over the weekend? From Halsey to Viola Davis to Aly Raisman speaking in court I had goosebumps listening to their powerful words.
Check them out below, you won't regret it!
2 days ago I recited a poem I wrote called “A Story Like Mine” at the Women’s March in NYC. I was asked to give a speech and I panicked for days. I wasn’t sure where to start. The night before the march I penned this poem at 2 in the morning and the words spilled out of me like white water rushing down a river bend. I didn’t realize how emotional it would be for me to speak my truth but it was. And I’m so happy I did it. The support I’ve received since is overwhelming and it’s humbling and as a POET (which I always have been, songs or not) it was unbelievable to see people actually get the message. And terrifying and comforting and confusing to see how many had stories to share that reinforced the sentiment and the title. We have a long way to go. But I’m thankful we are united over this. I’ve included a link to the poem in my bio. Thank you.
