There have been men
(hard, crude, skin-deep)
and there have been women
(embarrassed, sneering, skin-deep)

and I think: there will be men
and there will be sneering women

but leaning in, you are
like a country with banners lowered
dominion and surrender
soft, touched with permission
hard, daring and
conquering: and

there will be you.
