I am. Are you Ready.

This is such a powerful poem. Audre inspires me to believe that one individual can have a tremendous impact, all by herself.

Woman power

is

Black power

is

Human power

is

always feeling

my heart beats

as my eyes open

as my hands move

as my mouth speaks

I am

are you

Ready.

—Audre Lorde (1974)
