Have a Revolution
Nikki Giovanni once wrote “then I awoke and dug that if I dreamed natural dreams of being a natural woman doing what a woman does when she’s natural, I would have a revolution.” Giovanni’s poem Revolutionary Dreams best describes my experience as a mother; my own personal revolution. Like others, I wanted to change the world, stop hunger, stop crime… start a revolution to better the world. But then I became a mother and I realized that being a mother is the most natural and revolutionary thing I could have ever done!
