We cannot ask for the right to speak.
We cannot fight for equality.
We cannot wait for our turn; for the laws to pass.
We cannot ask for what is already ours.
“They” cannot give what is not their’s to give.
We cannot make anyone ‘get it’ or understand.
Until we live it. All of it.
Until we risk abandonment.
Until we risk discomfort that no one can relieve.
Until we are no longer willing to sell ourselves for acceptance.
Until we are no longer willing to obey what belongs to another.
There are no ‘good girls”, there are only women.
And there is no greater magic, power or element of change or healing than a woman.
