We were left with scars of shame when all we wanted to do was sparkle a little in the sunlight. 

But I am all cells and nerves and magic and energy and mine.

How can I own this body that you never let be fully mine?

Beginning in girlhood, everyone has had an opinion. They stole bits of me with each look, comment and touch.

This is the fight to reclaim ourselves; our energy, bodies, joy and power.

This is the howl of joy and anger that demands to be heard.

From the creative team behind ‘Jellyfish’ (Out to Lunch 2016) and ‘it’s getting harder and harder for me’ (CQAF 2018)
