Stevie Nicks decided to honor Taylor Hawkins by composing an emotional poem and an open letter on March 25 after learning of his tragic death. Nicks, a gifted composer, frequently expresses her feelings via poems and letters. This time, however, she choose to write about her worries over the upcoming midterm elections and urge her supporters to take action against the repeal of Roe v. Wade.
November 8 is less than a month away from election day. Stevie Nicks is worried about the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade, which would place the last say on abortion rights in the hands of the states. It is anticipated that many states would outlaw abortion, which would be extremely troublesome for women’s rights. The reversal of Roe v. Wade is alarming because history is repeating itself, as Nicks put it.
Stevie Nicks recently opted to express her worries through a letter and a poem in an Instagram post. Nicks noted that of the 35 available Senate seats, 14 were held by Democrats and 21 by Republicans in the caption of the post. The performer then emphasized that everyone should use their right to vote and that every single vote matters. In her letter, Nicks expressed her desire to record her poetry as a song and sent it to her friends, followers, and American women who are able to vote.
As a 74-year-old female, the Fleetwood Mac legend admitted that she cares about everyone. She urged everyone to register to vote and emphasized the October 11 deadline to her followers. The singer said that since the demise of Roe v. Wade will drastically alter everyone’s lives, immediate action must be taken. In addition, if Roe v. Wade is repealed, government authorities will have control over everyone’s life. As a result, Nicks forewarned her admirers in her capacity as a woman who experienced what occurred to women between 1966 and 1973.
Everyone is urged to recover their power in Nicks’ poetry since so many people are attempting to do so. In addition, she urges the reader to assert their rights now while there is still time. The poem, titled “Get It Back,” has a depressing yet upbeat tone with the intention of inspiring the reader to act. As it turns out, the performer is preparing to record “Get It Back” as a single while continuing her North American tour.
Stevie Nicks wrote on Instagram:
“Every state has a stake in this year’s midterms, as all 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for grabs. 35 open Senate spots are currently held by 14 Democrats and 21 Republicans. While some statewide races will likely have a larger impact on national politics than others, every single vote counts when it comes to electing state and local politicians.”
The letter is as follows:
“Dear Friends, fans, and women of America, from 18 to 100 years old. I am sending you a formal poem that I wrote not very long ago and the next day made into a song. Recording a song out here on the road is not an easy task — so while I am doing that, I decided that you should have the words.
At 74 years old, I can honestly say that I am worried about every one of you. Worried about health care, and just in general, concerned about your God-given rights. You must gather together now. You must register to vote as soon as possible (for many of you, the deadline is tomorrow, October 11!), and you must vote! The disintegration of Roe v. Wade will change your life in an unfathomable way. You will not have control over what your beautiful dreams want for you.
Your lives will be in the hands of government officials who do not know you and cannot possibly know what your future should be. You are the masters of your own ship. I watched what happened to women from 1966 (I was 18) to 1973 when I was 25 and 2 years away from joining Fleetwood Mac. Believe me, when I tell you, you don’t want that world to come back so. Please vote. Call everyone you know, and ask them to join you. Read the words to my song. I wrote it for you. I love you. Stevie.”
