She is precious, the giver and nurturer of life
Let’s cherish and protect her with our life,

She was cocooned and loved and cared for
Till slowly she was not cared for,

She was relegated to the back
Making things difficult and dark,

Soon the folly was realized
And baby steps taken to make it otherwise,

A few men pushed and propelled her forward
But most times she stood for herself and moved forward,

Not everyone started at the same time
Some had a headstart, while some are still starting the climb,

To be a superwoman is not the aim
To inspire fellow sisters is the game,

A world where everyone has a fair chance
That is where I look to advance.

As we celebrate the success of every woman today, let’s work together to create world where everyone has equal opportunity and is treated fairly.
