A big part of women “taking their place in history” involves them stepping outside their comfort zones and being free to express themselves in a patriarchal society. My poem explores this freedom and the mixed emotions that come with this feminist evolution.
Cool air captivates her senses. She wonders Is she up too high? Her wings beat harder never clipped but Folded soon gliding along peaceful skyline thoughts evaporate like rain She soars higher testing the limits, Herself She laughs her voice dipped in honey She is unbreakable Abrupt like thunder claps she laughs again she is free.
