“I’m grateful that, after an early life of being silenced, sometimes violently, I grew up to have a voice, circumstances that will always bind me to the rights of the voiceless.”  Rebecca Solnit

 

Her Own True Way

She felt voiceless,
shut down,
cut down,
weighed down,
yet she had an inner strength,
something deep,
and she drew it forth,
and set off,
in her own true way.
