we warrior healers…
© 2013 by margaux delotte-bennett

we have hands
forged like iron
burned and hammered into a grip
that does not yield

our lips spit fierce justice
and unquenchable fire
for tongues burdened with truth
are seldom light

when the only choices are
to be whole
or die
we can only step up and out of now
boldly into a tomorrow we made worth
every bit of today’s fight
to survive.
