our time has come to stand tall
united in a revolution of change
a collective of feminine voices
saying, No More!
It is time we take back our bodies create a resolution to change the expected and learn to accept
everyone is born their own way
beautiful in their own skin.
It is time to stop participating
in the games of a perfect image
starving for anothers body
an average that does not exist.
It is time to love and cherish
yourself, believe you were born
beautiful in your own way
for your daughter is watching.
It is time for you to remember
where you came from
to say thank you to your mother,
your grandmothers and aunts,
all the women that wore
the body you were born to wear.
