Thank You Zoe for your lovely poem. I heard it at the UN Women Peace Walk on Saturday. I work on FGM in Sierra Leone, and I have an organization that specifically deals with FGM and the complexity of the issue in Sierra Leone only. I will love to sit and discuss this with You sometime, if You may have the time. My kind request is for You to add a simple line to your poem:
In Sierra Leone there is a woman whose genitals are being mutilated in the name of tradition.
I am that woman.
We are that woman.
I hope we can speak in person.
Thank You for your powerful art!

It is my honor to add the line you suggested. Thank you.
