You've written a story and a truth for every woman. I appreciate the authenticity of your words, and acting them out makes them all the more powerful. Thank you for sharing this...it's a testament to how poetry can inspire change.

The first words that came to my mind when I watched the clip are the same words Debra used in her comment: authentic and powerful. Thank you for sharing your work, Ynanna!
