and I sat by the grave for years
watching
the days passing

I wondered to myself
is there any way to alter what is?
and I waited for the heroines to appear before me

I learned from them
I watched Velvet Martin
and Jessica Ernst

all of these strong women
have taught me how to be
then Ruth Adria was introduced to me

by Shauna McHarg
and I learned of yet more others
like Diana Daunheimer

who are working to make the world
safe for our children
I learned from each of these women

the ways of activism
what you have to do
is to be intransigent about facts

and demand action
for the failures in the system
we are no longer children


find your heroines
wherever you may
and then learn from them
