wonder woman

if

i

had been born

one hundred years ago

i

would have no voice

if

i

had listened

to all the males in my life

i

would not be where i am now

but

i

listened to one

i

called him dad.

if

i

had heeded

all the bad bosses i worked under

i

would have stopped my fight

but i

didn’t

and i

won’t

till you can stop fighting

too.

because

i

have a dream too

that

i

won’t have to rely on a man’s support

to validate my talents

to make

me

real

i

will be entirely

and independently

a wonder woman.
