Strong Women

I follow strong women
Women who are conscious
Women who are defiant
Women who are gay
Women who are straight
Women who are married
Women, single and rocking
Women, divorced and rebranded

I follow strong women
Women who harness strength from goddesses
Women who sit in fire unscathed
Women of faith immovable like matriarchs
Women seeking balance in quiet meditation
Women branded witches of feminist covens
Impaled on tall crosses of traditions

I follow strong women
Women striking power poses
on shaky foundations
Women influencing
Women leading
Women disrupting
Women uniting and forming alliances
To impact followers, communities
And status quo
