Emotikins are my lifesavers

Thanks to my sister for sending me this poem once.

Water Women
By Alla Bozarth-Campbell

We do not want to rock the boat you say
 Mistaking our new posies for something safe.
We smile secretly at each other sharing the reality
 That for sometime we have not been in the boat.
We jumped, or were pushed, or fell, and some leaped overboard.

Our bodies form a freedom fleet
 Our dolphin grace is power
We learn and teach and as we go each woman sings
 Each woman’s hands are water wings.

Some of us have become mermaids or Amazon whales
 And are swimming for our lives.
Some of us do not know how to swim
 We walk on water.
