Don’t Let Them Fool You


You are awesome for who you are

The way you are

That love magnificent gushing through you

Hardest of hearts would soften and melt away

That passion of yours, earthshaking

Moves the world, fills it with laughter, lifts it high

Your gentle embrace, embroidered in heaven

Wipes out misery, radiant again the human race

The power of your grace, majestic and sublime

Puts evil down to utter disgrace

Sweetheart, listen to me

You… Give… Birth… To… LIFE

Can you ever imagine more power than that!

Empowering you?

What a fable!

Power is already all yours

Power isn’t a suit and a tie

Growing muscles or a mustache

Handling machines doesn’t make you great

* * *

Power isn’t waging wars

Commanding mass-killing armies

Leading nations with iron fist

* * *

Power isn’t climbing a ladder of “success”

Trampling over whomever is on the way

Fighting through arms and teeth, for the highest pay

* * *

Power isn’t running in a rat race

While self-harming children coil and weep, all alone

Craving mama’s love, tender hand and blissful gaze

* * *

Charity begins at home, they say

Men and women are completing not competing

Meant to dwell in harmony

Super clusters called family

Where children learn kindness, altruism, dignity and poise

How to grow love, and how love grows

Empowering women?

What a fable!

Power is already all theirs

  1. Fascinating poem. Drew tears to my eyes, of joy and reassurance that all are not fooled. Thank you endlessly for this reassurance to all women, and by reflection to all men as well, and to the mutual bond of Love they cherish, that multiplies Life.

  3. I think that all women need to know this. That the nurturing side of us has more value than we are led to believe and that ‘Feminism’, in its eagerness to make us ‘equal’, has done us a disservice in its stridency and aggression. And yet women World wide are still submissive to patriarchal society which still too often treats them abominably, and thereby is the faultline in humanity.
