Like Ash, We Will Rise.

Like Ash, We Will Rise.

A Poem by Ireen Chikatula

A tribute to all women and girls who have been sabotaged. To women and girls who have been sexually, physically, emotionally, financially and Psychologically abused. Like Ash, may you rise.

They scorned us
They trapped us
To the core they crushed us
They punched us
And they bruised us

Curtailed to frivolity
Strode on
Dumped to the gutter
We lay at our lowest

The wind blew
We poised with drift
From the twinges
We flared and we rose

We acquired a new mastery
The ability to rise
From the ground
To the greatest heights

Nay will like it
When we take off
We will loom
We are untamed

And when we rise
We will disperse
Never to be seized again

Like Ash,we rose
Like Ash, we will rise.
