WOMAN, THE BEAUTIFUL PATHFINDER

The role being played by women
Across the world provides a liberating image
Of her indomitable spirit and versatility.
Endowed with a wealth of ideas and artistic power,
She has collaborated closely with man
To push harder and harder until
Goals are achieved and nations shine.
Hurt sometimes, insulted at other times,
Humiliated most of the time, depressed,
Deserted, battered and feelings shattered,
She rises and stands tall in any circumstance.
Her labors on the world stage
May sometimes not be recognised
And yet, she moves on, focused on the larger picture.
Her commitment to global security
Will never waver, for she believes in oneness.
For her, running a home is not a marathon task.
She has mastered the art of braving the wind,
Sailing in rough seas and find paths for all.
She has revolutionized society, savvy that she is,
She resonates with universalism of human identity,
Giving free access to truth and reality.
