Woman formed out of a man yet strong, strong as thousand
Oxens guarding her flocks whilst they gaze at a
Mighty world dipped in treachery. Yet again and
Again she raise after every fall. I urge you to
Navigate through life’s valley and hills with courage – Woman.
I write this Acrostic poem to celebrate the toil of women on International Women’s Day. I celebrate you woman, not solely because I am one but I see the way you dedicate your life to your children, other women and the men in your life and you earn that praise. If you- woman- perhaps come across this poem feeling disappointed in your life’s journey, I urge you to take another step. That extra step may you lead you to your awakening but you will not know if you do not try. I know you have taken so many steps so far but I am walking my marathon as well. We will pause to drink from rest sweet fountain, dust off and carry on. I celebrate you, woman.
