Warrior Work

to stand up tall and proud
with no tears to shed
no quiet space
to call your own
to teach the muddy minds
of the future generation
to show them how it
could be done
to waft and wade
in subway muck
the negative energy
shifting weight
your gait the only
physical thing that
withstands the crushing
day, to say “I am
proud to be a woman
housing life
creating creation
birthing a new being–
She has chosen me
to be the one
she calls upon
day in and day out
forever
she will call me
Mommy
and that, my dears,
is true
is the truest
Warrior Work.
