We had this activity of writing a poem about women for last month’s Birthday Bash at work, which took on the theme of Women’s day.
Below is the poem I wrote.
Many a man’s success, many a nation’s demise
Bear the footprint of a woman, with virtue or vice.
Love of the mother, for life given,
Bond of the wife, until life taken,
Like two rains from two clouds in the same sky
One nourishing, other balancing.
Understand the origins of life… I can,
Understand a feminine mind… I cannot.
Contradictions, galore, in harmony… a woman!
