I love that we feel, deeply

and Taylor Swift and Adele write songs only we can truly understand

I love that when we cry, we hug

and when we hug, we tell each other how much the other is loved

I love that we are empowered, forces of nature

and that we grow communities that celebrate our resilience

I love that we are adolescent environmentalists, vaccine designers, writers and demanders of change

and that our intelligence prevails in a world that continually tries to conceal it

I love that we were chosen to carry our children

and that biology knew only we could

I love that we are women.
