To Be Full And Free

What if
You didn’t have to be beautiful
What if
You just were
Your emerald
Sapphire and
Cats eye
What if you knew
That the folds of silk
And sand
And warm toffee
Were all that mattered
The feel and the taste
The joy
Of the breath in and out
What if those years
Leaving you spent
The counting and
The shrinking
And control
What if
You could claim them back
For your mother
And your daughter
And you
What if you could
Use that time
To build and strengthen
Dance and sing
Hold and love
Learn and live
What if
We all did that
Every woman
Our world would
And should
Be full
And free
