it was hers

they took.
they invaded.
they pushed.
they violated.
in so many different ways.
a lifetime of pushes and takings
and making her feel less than valuable.
sitting back, she began to see it.
how it had gone on and on.
and in seeing it,
she began to realize -
it was up to her now
to shout,
to whisper,
to sing,
to move
and to believe in her value.
no more taking that from her.
it was hers.
no more giving it away.
it was hers.
with strength
and with knowing,
she held it.
she lived it.
she became it.
