Poem: Force To Be Reckoned

Our voice was heard
Our rights were won
One day at a time
We fought for what was right

But one simple check of a box
Set our stride back years
The vote belittle us
Ignorant men humor
Pride wins over equality

They think they won
Power at their grasp
But once given can be taken away
Their voice continues to bellow out
But They didn’t count
When They squeak,
We roar

We are strong
We are loud
Spoken or written
We will be heard
Arrogance can safely sit on top
But they don’t know
We are force to be reckon with
In our case
Silence is not Golden

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
