Remember

A black and white image of a large tree at night with the moon shining through its branches

By Diana Ensign

 

There was a time when
Women helped each other,
With secret herbs and secret gatherings

Because powerful men
Who ran the church and the government—often
One in the same—believed women inferior, born of
Sin, useful only as vessels to bear sons
For the next lineage of rulers—

But women knew the herbs
To control their own destinies.

And when the church and the men
Burned these women at the stake,
Women learned—

The power of words, and songs, and dances,
That traveled far beyond the nights lit by flames,
To echo into all eternity:

“Never again.”

Listen

And know your power to fight back
Survived the flames.
