The Clara Lemlich Awards Last Night and Every Way We Can

And there they were five women

strong fighters on a stage in a museum

surrounded by love by a big room of people who wanted

to hear them to listen to their advice

hear about their paths five women who did not let

age or life’s problems get in the way

of fighting what they believe and what they know

we need all of us every single one of us

to make this world better  every way we can think of

every single way we can

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
