Born with a distinct purpose
Weaned with huge expectations
Rumored wrongly to be the weaker one
Strong enough to bear another life
Powerfully equipped to raise a nation
The backbone behind every success story.
Her heart is an outstanding treasure
Her mind is a wisdom filled library
Her lips raise mountains
Her bosom bears the weight of the world
Her courage rises at every attempt to intimidate her
Her joy streams from her sacrifice for others
Power is not given to her, she takes it
Fearless in the face of adversity, she strides
Love is her entire existence
With a wild imagination, her love stems from admiration
Awe and admiration of the beauty she carries ceases to overwhelm me
Her simple glance, beautiful smile and admonishing words are priceless.
Her scars are hidden from the eyes
Borne from numerous struggles she has had to face
A fiery warrior in all ramifications
Welcoming to all visitors, both good and evil
With arms wide open, she exposes her vulnerability without care
Cos her actions are judged by her heart.
Smart enough to imagine the divine in her image and likeness
Proud of her body’s rhythm and cycles as a supreme entity
Stubborn much to march to the beats of her own needs and that of her young
Dogmatically listening to the wise voice from within
Equipped to bear the weights and worries of loved ones
Exuding exquisite tenderness and grace in all manners.
For the women who died while protecting their beliefs
For the women who shook the world at its foundations
For the women who sacrificed their pride to feed their families
For the women who ignored the sexism and overtook the men
For the women, whose smiles made our hearts warm.
She is a WOMAN
Radiating in all her glory
All colors, shapes and sizes
Spectacular, Strong and Independent
Soft-hearted, Witty and Vulnerable
One of the many reasons I adore HER.
Happy International Women’s Day.
