We Are Fierce
& it will no longer be a post it note
pasted to my wall like a hibernating butterfly--
I will open my window
& my words will flutter with conspicuous flight
leaving a memo on the breath of flowers--
They will bloom brighter
cheering the birds to sing this song--
We are fierce like the budding seeds of trees on the flat lands of the rainforest.
We are fierce like the palettes of flowers beaming in the afternoon sunshine.
We are fierce like the howls from wolves echoing in the mountains--
& we are fierce.
because we have a voice
& together we will all sing
until the thunderous words reach the heavens.
