Not by birth, but by vow.

We stand in solidarity,
hands interwoven into
peace-filled fists of unity.

This is Sisterhood.

When we cry together,
when we laugh together,
birth miracles together…

This is Sisterhood.

Mooning synchronously
and bleeding for each other
from hearts ravaged by

This is Sisterhood.

Each time we face the mirror,
gazing lovingly into the tired eyes
of every other woman
in the world,

this is most definitely Sisterhood.

Sisterhood is what brought
us here –

to this time,

in this place.

We have found each other now,
because we need each other now.

We vowed –


To show up.
