What We Want by Dawn Gena
We are tenacious, strong, intelligent and resourceful.
We are the love of your life, the bane of your existence, the center of your world and catalyst of your downfall.
We bear your children and more often than not; raise them alone.
We fight beside you in wars, on and off battlefields.
We have overcome the heavy yolks thrown around our necks by society only to have new ones forged by the hands of the cold, calculating and desperate.
We wear numerous hats while living many roles.
We are rich, poor and everything in between.
We are the colors of the rainbow and Mother Earth.
No matter the country, the century, the day of the week…
We all want one thing.
