Writing a bio for me is hard because I am myself and I could go on and on about how I think of me but would that be correct in others eyes? So I guess the only word I can really use to describe me is Bree and let my writing do the rest.

Always, always always remember to see both sides of the story and you might just fill another book.

The Suffragettes

March 27, 2019

PROMPT: History Alive

6
Mothers and daughters and sisters and wives
Hard to think that society didn't care for their lives
Surprise
We had to earn our way here
Each suffragette was a new pioneer
In the sphere of the near
Future was made clear
By these brave women
And some valiant men
The bonds of our nation was united again
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott
Went against the bias that had been taught
Not only did they believe people couldn't be bought or rot in the chains where they had been bought
They fought
And Susan B. Anthony and Sojourner Truth
Didn't speak up for them, they spoke up for you
Emily Davison and Emmeline Pankhurst
All of them faced prejudice until the herse
These suffragettes and countless more
Led the charge against the sexism and gave them the what-for
Now the history is shown as women are not ignored -
And we can march forward with that accord.

    This has a wonderful rhythm, and the rhymes are pretty good too! I think "herse" should actually be spelled "hearse", though. Great job!
