To women canto #1

by bernardtwindwil

Always I've known the power of you My mother was one of you

The species doesn't exist but for you I am bound for life to one of you I am here because of you

Your strength today was epic Your rage was a live polemic

Disregard and fear of you is systemic Your stand for your rights was poetic The cause is a cry magnetic

All xx's on Earth joined in a melting pot The rousing shout of freedom in polyglot Your heroic historical voices won't be forgot

You stood against ignorance While assaulted by sexist rants

Your stand without men declared your independence For future generations of women you provide transcendence Your cause will only be won by perseverance

The protracted battle as of today Women refusing to be prey

Beckoned a new generation to the fray The status quo will not stay The full power of the gender was on display

The pictures are of the march and Boudica.
