What Makes her Brave. {Poem}

Newton’s Third Law

fear
is what makes the little girl
(shy
and her shyness
is what makes her)
brave

fear
is what makes the shy girl
(silent
and her silence
is what makes her)
write

fear
is what makes the silent girl
(run
and running
is what makes her)
escape

fear
is what makes the running girl
(weep
and the release
is what makes her)
strong

fear
is what makes the weeping girl
(feel
and feeling all of this
is what makes the woman)
unafraid
