WOMEN ARISE (For International Women’s Day)

There is a reason beauty was given to most flowers
Along with their fragile nature and protective thorns
There is a reason they are nectared to feed many beaks and winged livers
Amidst the storms, rains and suns
And through their bruises, beheading and rots
I wish the creator spells it out

II
There sure is a reason love’s ironed ends
Reside in soft, warm, malleable femininity
With its sweat of tears
Surely, the creator is a skilled artist
Who knows the recipe of life’s nature and nurture
And which craft best fits caretaking
Even though we live behind the hidden reason
Let’s take the nature challenge

III
We need to rise
To be the world’s best sunrises
Shining off societal ills that handcuff our progress
We need to shine our love
On the darkness of yesteryears
To clear blinded eyes to see our best covered by society’s prisons
We need to lead with empathy on our sleeves
Even through tough times
To be lotuses in this murky mud called earth
We need to break the yokes of self doubt
Forgetting what arrested and forging through what enlightens

IV
No blame ever harvested fruits to feed a soul
No shame ever dressed a being with gold
No tears ever bathed a heart to be hurt free
No bitterness ever dusted hatred in harmed beings
No attack ever resurrected deaths of prides
None can tell our own stories like us
So arise in your awesomeness
Lead in your rights in gowns of perfections through respect and care
For you are flawless creations
Only flawlessly flawed by love and its deflections
To take on challenges like lozenges in our cold world
To share the covered smiles to flutter hearts
In evenness
To make life’s ride a pleasure for all
