What The Mirror Said By Lucille Clifton (1936-2010)

This poem makes me so happy. I wanted to share it with you wonderful guys because it would be selfish for me to keep it all to myself and not share. I dedicate it to all the awesome feminists out there, and every other woman; young or old. “You a wonder”. Enjoy.

listen,
you a wonder.
you a city
of a woman.
you got a geography
of your own.
listen,
somebody need a map
to understand you.
somebody need directions
to move around you.
listen,
woman,
you not a noplace
anonymous
girl;
mister with his hands on you
he got his hands on
some
damn
body!
