I’m a feminist.
There, I said it,
though You are not shocked.
It was You who made me so.
Growing up aglow in Your love,
it was obvious.

If You loved me,
then what I am is special.
If You believed in me,
than what I am is capable.
If You respected me,
then what I am is worthy.
You taught me that being a feminist
isn’t shameful or unwomanly;
it is the essence of womanhood.

It is pride,
not just in me, but in You.
Help the rest of the world see this.
There are eyes
that need to be opened,
and only Your hands
can pry the lids apart.
