What We Want and What We Need

These last few weeks have felt like rainbows
And freedom
And a different kind of yearning
Than any I’ve ever felt before
It’s felt like the opening of a million new possibilities
It’s a taste of a different me
One who swears like a sailor
Laughs louder
Feels more confident
Connects more deeply with others
And knows how to take care of herself.
My perspective has shifted
These women have lifted, inspired and challenged me
Shown me what it is to be a good person
How to be selfless
To give of myself for the betterment of others
To carry on the ancient sisterhood
We have talked about changing the world
We are changing it
Lost and wandering we are finding our places
We know what we want
And what we need
Lo quiero, lo necesito.
