POWERFUL WOMEN, A Poem


from Mimic, a new book of poems

This is an epic story. I think about leaders like Marianne Williamson, this could be about her —or when I first wrote the words I felt like it was Maharet from Anne Rice’s Queen of the Damned traveling 6 millennia to protect her daughter. Either way, it’s a poem instilled with courage and enormous love. I dedicate it to them both.

I COME FROM a LONG LINE of POWERFUL WOMEN

I Come from a long line of powerful women
they were warriors
of light
whom built bridges
nations would cross

They were homesteaders
and herders
and shepherds
and queens
I come from a long line of powerful women

I come from kingdoms
that did not incarcerate
but set free
the peaceable

I come from Mary
and Eva
and Amina
and Lady Jane Grey

They were huntresses
of right mindedness
gathering fruits
from trees bared
wisdom infinite

I come from them all
do not question
my worth —
request my gift
I come from a long line of powerful women
