Woman Reimagines 'Formation' By Beyoncé In Kickass Feminist Poem

"Together we are unstoppable. The perfect definition of powerful."

Beyoncé's call for women's solidarity in her hit single "Formation" was heard loud and clear.

One woman in particular embraced the singer's message so much, she reinterpreted the song into a powerful poem calling on women everywhere to unite through sisterhood.

In her poem, which is also titled "Formation," Ernestine Johnson -- who says in the video that she identifies as a "truth teller," not a poet -- delivers a powerful message declaring that the images of sisterhood should be reshaped to reflect stronger unity. 

"OK, now ladies, let's get in formation," Johnson recites. "Prove to me you've got some cooperation."

Johnson -- who is wearing in all an-all black body suit, similar to what Beyoncé and her dancers wore at this year's Super Bowl -- encourages women to band together and build a world where all women work together to help uplift one another. 

"Let's link up with our sisters and help each other get our ideas started," she says. "Let's put in the groundwork and build up our networks."

At several points throughout the video, two little black girls with afros are shown dancing and hugging -- a powerful representation of Johnson's message for solidarity.

"Women, we are inventors, creators and debaters," Johnson says. "Together we are unstoppable. The perfect definition of powerful."
