International Woman’s Day

I’ve inherited a heart so warm it cures the heaviest tears,
Floods of laughter that brighten the dampest spirit,
A smile so wide i forget yesterdays night sky

Oh when i look at you, i see a reflection of these eyes,
A gap into; the earth stays still; as i pass through
the middle of calamity. It used to be fun when life passed over me
Now we are level in sight and stand shoulder to shoulder but i will not move
I will use the strength of my mothers, mothers before my mother
Force my way to freedom; to love, to hold, to cherish and be bold

i heard i was phenomenal and held it close to my heart
Now i will start to be a woman
Weave my basket full of wisdom and carry my jewels like my mothers mother and before her mother

Happy International Womans Day
