#MeToo – A Poem

A poem

So many years ago
But like it was yesterday

Sisters are coming forward
So brave, so strong
I can be brave & strong too

I am not broken
I was cracked open & I put myself back together
As best I could

I can’t keep quiet
I’ve swallowed it back for too long
I can speak out

When you look at me
Don’t feel bad
Be amazed at my courage

So many years ago
Every day since then has been a day I earned.

– D.W. Dorsey
