Walking On Water - Poem by Shirley Alexander

You prance your masculinity
like God-Of-All-Women,
sharp as bullets in my life,
never a gentle touch.

I will swim in waters deep,
places you can never reach.

You have not learned
the breast-stroke;
you cannot swim here.

If you are the Power God
of everything me,
try to catch my wake.

All you have to do is
walk on these waters
of change.
