Follow the women

For Hāwane, Mehana and Malia

Who take you back to your mountain 

Who show you how 

To hold your breath 

As you trace her ridges 

Follow those women 

Who’s scales don’t cut at your soft skin

Who can see the way 

You never shed

Just carry 

Follow the women 

Who return you to the summit

In your joy 

In your fear 

In your every body
