The way your eyebrows furrow when you think, The way your body moves once you drink. The way you set my soul on fire, The way you are my one true desire. My sincerest angel, my little hellion, Baby, you’re a rebel, and I’m the rebellion. Come, let us start a war.
I come from a long line of women who fight as hard as they love Who have been ostracized for standing up to abusers
Who were fired for speaking up against the use of God as punishment
Who believed that every single person has a voice and that every single person is entitled to respect just for living
Who have taught me not to stay silent in the face of injustice
