Dub Poem

I.W.D.

What does that mean to me
Just look at the scenery
And you will see
Possibility
Discovering our voice
Leads to freedom of choice
Refusing to play the should-guilt-shame-blame game
Decolonize our minds
Celebrate all womankind
Think how we self-oppress
Through the ways we choose to dress
Really need to self define
Help our daughters free their minds
It' s up to you and me
There is no "we" in community
But maybe there needs to be
And this is what I.W.D means to me
