woman

when do they say "I am woman"?
and when do they say "I am human"?
I look down and see the potential
for calloused hands and swollen stomach.
I look up and see dreams
sprawled out in light blue.
The power in women is connecting,
soil and sky,
blood and stars.
She is steady
and her voice is strong.
because for so long
she has stood tall,
holding the stars in her eyes.
