A Newfound Mantra

By Julia Lima, TIWP Student

there was a new voice
that kept you company

it lingered around
the feet that kept you grounded
and made you say
“yes i am”

it swayed beside
the hips that kept you untamed
and made you say
“yes i am”

it nestled between
the breasts that let you bloom
and made you say
“yes i am”

it stung inside
a mouth that set you free
and made you say
“yes i am”

it burned
in the eyes that kept you alive
and made you say
“yes i am”

and as the voice grew louder
and louder
the only thing you could do
was listen

the new voice
was your own
it made you
“woman”
