Daughters of the Ocean

Daughters of the Ocean

Women are the strongest warriors
Because we share the world with men
We bleed our whole lives
Yet we survive
We witness men destroy our bodies and our Earth
Yet we carry on, caring for our loved ones
Nourishing ourselves with our own salt-water tears

We rise as surely as the tides
We each embody the ocean’s roar
I am one tiny wave
And you are millions more

I hope that someday
Toxic masculinity will wash away
From our beautiful Mother Earth’s face
We are already creating space
For unstoppable sea-changes
We are powerful enough to move mountain ranges
We are Daughters of the Ocean
And we will always be in motion
