My swords are covered in rust. My body is dirty with soil. My Soul carries the pain of a thousand wounds. And yet, I rise, over and over again to exist among the living.

I dedicate this piece to the strength of all women who have stayed down in order to be accepted and loved. To all of those who overcame the belief and shattered those chains and paved the road to many yet to come.
