I am amazed by the things that girls and women survive in this world. From patriarchy to misogyny with far too many daily threats to personal security, self-determinism, and autonomy. The view from the outside incites far too many negative emotions for me; however, I want to stay in my lane. I abhor what is and has been. I mourn all that was lost and never allowed to be. I restlessly await what should have long since been and what desperately needs to be.
