Woman, you should know of the things you have been trained to forget.
Of the truths you have been denied with a bleached mind from toxic masculinity, aimed to dampen your spirit and pull up the roots of your divinity.
Woman, you should remember that at no time in the history of humankind was it able to survive without you. For you are the bearer of life. You are the holy womb of love and light, you are the divine.
Woman, you should know that the scars of ancestors appear on your back as proof of the holy fire you were born with, lead with, and conquer with. You are the warrior.
Woman, you should know that you are the elements of earth, wind, fire, and water. You are the universe.
Woman, you should know that you can manifest and create, that you are designed of dignity and grace. You have those abilities which can never be taken from you.
Woman, you should know that this is your hour and the time for reckoning has passed.
Woman, you should know that is time to wake up and rise.
