Me Too

poem by: Haley Banks
Written on Nov 06, 2017

In corners we cry 
In love we withdraw 
In whispers we tell 
In public we pretend 

But

In our scars we bond
In pain we unite
In tragedy we stand
In solidarity we scream 

And from here on out

We refuse to go away 
We push forward
We realize our worth 
We rise above 

Above Those

who harmed us
who told us to move on
who claimed it was our fault 
who ignore the issue

Because 

we are beautiful
We are strong
We are resilient
And we will not be stopped
