A poem for today – Women on Fire

Women on Fire, Women inspire, together we are wise,
Our reality occurs to us daily; our hearts are soft, our will is strong,
Our true value is yet unknown even to our selves.
It’s time to recognize we are all one, mothers of a new world;
Here to love not fear, our kindness will kindle a future of hope.
We need a realization that we can forgive, the past is past,
Surely we are responsible for what happens next?
Let make sure it is inclusive embracing, collaborative, enriching,
Abandon now the competitiveness between sisters,
Instruct a new paradigm, a stand for integrity, a wholeness that brings joy,
Not born of yesterday, but seeded with our hearts and wombs.
A new blueprint for life and work, for families, for parenting, for abundance,
Breeding a society that serves all, dependants and workers alike,
Humanity for humanity, fair for all and love for everyone.
