The story of being (Ms. Emma) - from Women in The Village

When I am old
I will sit on my porch with young women at my feet
We will explore and declare new possibilities of loving
Of living

We will tear down and break through chains
Of how great great grandmamas said it was supposed to be

We will not remember granddaddy's dos and do nots of womanhood
We will not give our vaginas away in the night
Because that's what he wants to hear

We will touch, feel and embrace every part of our being
Every part of our remembering

We will breathe
We will not know right and wrong
We will only know love
