From one woman to another

Women have weight, 
some say we are too heavy-
I say to shoulder their words, 

let the little rips roll off

or tip on their sides-

Shoulder Their Words!

Like we have shouldered 

the sons and daughters 

of this nation for three hundred years.

Shoulder them all-

you are strong enough.

You have the weight 

to carry them forward- 

Shoulder them all

whether they deserve it

or not, 

and know that 

I will shoulder you, too.
