We know that everything will be OK

But right now everything is not OK

Women are rushing to get permanent birth control

Before pills aren’t covered by their insurance

What did we do wrong?

To bring us to this?

Did Susan really say failure is impossible?

It was when we segregated the women’s movement

We failed to say we needed to include all people–black and white

We thought black men would hurt our cause

Now we see we need each other

More than ever

To protect all men’s and women’s bodies

We must admit our failure

And now we reach out to all.
