Our Choice

We bleed ink
To dispel the lies
That bite in deep
That suffocate
The meaning
Of our suffragette
That allow us
To vote our hearts
Regardless of what any man
Tries to say or do
It is just us
It is just our voice
We draw out in ink
Solidified by our ancestor’s
Sacrifice

By Ashley Houston

A poem I wrote for #VSS365 today. The word prompt is ink.
