Woman – A Poem


Our collective voice wields power

Don’t try and break our chain for we were shacked for too long

Our desire for equality cries out

There is no denying our contributions

Curie, Parks, Nightengale, Thatcher

Winfrey, Pankhurst, Roosevelt, The Queen


Don’t silence us

Don’t put us down

For as the sun and phoenix rise we too rise

Hand in hand, arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder


So listen and learn from women

For we are mighty and powerful indeed

We are more than Mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend

We are light and love – strength and passion – drive and determination

A tribe  –  unified

A voice  –  collective
