To Women

May 19, 2014

Women are not inferior or superior to men,
They are only different from them.
They speak out and put up a fight,
For what they know to be just and right.

Women can cook, clean, earn and invent,
Run a marathon, a country, a home and parliament.
For centuries oppressed, suppressed, depressed and confined,
Today acknowledge their freedom and strength of mind.

Women need to be heard in global society,
Releasing them from being just a sexual minority.
Women walk the tight rope with efficient ease,
Balancing career, family, finance or disease.

For pleasure let their bodies not be abused,
Instead allow their intelligence and compassion to be used.
Daughter, sister, wife, lawyer, writer, activist, artist,
Homemaker, lover, sportsperson, politician or friend –
Applaud them all, bringing social injustice to an end.

Include them in decision-making, in negotiations, and empower
For an equitable society and world to flower.

September 2010, Singapore
