A Tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, poetry, View from Below, by Joan Ellen Gage

 

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg

 View from Below
 

 What have you done to deserve 

this? you say, not expecting an answer. We

 have all asked this, at one time or

 another, when we are hurt, or under

 attack on some unexpected front.

We usually do not see the blow, or

brick falling on our head, until it hits us. Then

BAM it strikes us to the heart and

soul of our being, we are floored, pinned

unable to move and uncertain of what to do.

Eventually, we get up and limp along,

try to get that “stiff upper lip” thing

going on, moving through the motions

until some sense of normalcy eventually

creeps in and healing takes place.

As women, we need be strong enough to

survive these affronts. We

 HAVE to, if we want to continue to

 grow and compete in this world, and we

 WILL do it, too!

We will believe and achieve all

that we must do. We

will do this together, you and I.

Make a promise today to help your sisters

when they are down, raise them up.

Raise them up, and believe in them, and they

WILL succeed

Let’s go girls!

by,

Joan Ellen Gage

The River of Time; poetry and digital art by Joan Ellen Gage

The River of Time

Suspended on an invisible bridge,

the river of time, 

rushing beneath my feet.

I can go nowhere. I am

 frozen, indecisive,

knowing I await my fate,

yet, unwilling to

jump.
