Exploring the stories of women who live by a ride-or-die philosophy

[POETRY] Any Given Sunday

By Halima Mohamed

I would turn to her for advice: therapeutic sessions

Be Infatuated by the warmth and light she embodies

As she passes by

Walks by

Struts by

I see her.

As a revolutionary

Speaking when told not to

She is the epitome of strength

Manifesting Knowledge with no expiration date

This woman. My sister

Is everything and more.

She symbolizes belief and faith like Rosa Parks

Her speech makes you shiver with passion

When I see her

a smile forms upon my face

This woman, My sister

Brings the energy to everyplace

I swear by the name of this woman, my sister

I will ride out

Any Given Sunday


haliHalima Mohamed. I don’t know what I am saying half the time but instead I know what I am feeling. For the love of expression.
