M.M.I.W Poem by ©️ Calina Lawrence

Matriarchal
Marching
In
Washington.

My
Mind
In
Wonder,

Maybe
My
Influence
Works…

Maybe
My
Imprisonment
Wins.

Many
Murdered
In
Womanhood

Mostly
Male
Insecurity…
Why

Me ?
My
Indigenous
Womb

Means
Magnificent
Inception !
When

Men
Mistake
It’s
Worth

Men
Misplace
It’s
Wisdom.

Memory
Manifests !
Internal
Warfare

Misleads
Masculinity.
I
Want

My
Mother’s
Innocence
Washed,

Marinated,
Mended
In
Water.

Matterofact
MY
Innocence!!!
White

Men
Mostly
Invading
Wombs,

Mirrors
Mistreating
Indigenous
Water!!! Water.

Meticulously
Molded,
Incredibly
Willing.

My
Medicine
IS
Water.

Melinated
Matriarchy
Implemented
WILL

Move
Mountains.
It
Will

Maintain
Mother Earth.
I
Walk

Miles
Magnifying
Indigenous
Women…

Missing,
Murdered,
Indigenous,
Women.
