"Mothers"

Say something stronger than the back you keep,

carrying the agony of past generations.

Saving the universe again and again,

as the rest of us comfortably rest on your shoulders.

What is more resilient than feet you travel with?

Touching soil and grass

through decades of change.

What is greater than the lips you speak with?

Sharing wisdom and laughter.

Teaching the restless to be patient

and the unborn to live.

Show me a body more capable than yours.

Offering your life to create another,

shaping the future through

the channels of your womb.

Who is superior to a rebel

instigating revolution, everyday

just by staying alive.
