Battles to Prosper 

by Marie Placido

Sexism triggering.

Changed life from negative

To an unbreakable lifestyle.

Everlasting battles to be equals.

Going unnoticed for hard work.

Being strong encouraging, supportive.

Presidents to provide clear passageways 

For future warriors.

Spitting images of leaders.

Powerful, challenged, outstanding, put down.

Protests, petitions, people

Waiting, watching wondering

When our time will come.
