Women Liberation Movement

March 21, 2008
By Lindsey Sherrod, Newnan, GA

Your sitting there,
on your throne,
commanding me to sit alone

Im up off my knees
I can no longer take this
constant seize

Im going to fight for my rights
should they be equal to yours
no more long sleepless nights.

Im a person
just like you
i may even have the same views.

I am a woman
I am strong
I will have rights.
someday i just might.

- I wrote this poem in the point of view as an aboriginal woman
