Exclusive: Best of Women Poetry: Edited by Padmaja Iyengar-Paddy

Today, tomorrow, always
in all seasons, years, centuries, even at the darkness of time
we women increase love, we keep love strong to lift the world above misery.
Today, tomorrow our love multiplies affectionately, active love, protective, sincere, passionate, blessed. 

Our love's fullness grows goodness to heal us and the world
to heal our wounded planet.
Alert on the motorway of determination day and night
alert to nurture our children with life’s love
to feed our husbands with confidence
to nurture our mothers and fathers.
On the hearts of our minds
we plant daily on the earth of our hearts prayers for World Peace.
We kneel on the Earth, the Earth we spray with our tears, love and thankfulness.
Joy and our tears the universe absorbs, our prayers fill the universe with love!
Oh God, hear all mothers, wives, daughters, hear our supplications for Peace.
Stop the wars, goodness grow in us, Oh God.

Today, tomorrow
I, we women stand against all aggression, wars, nuclear and conventional weapons
I, we women stand against oppression, drug use, drug lords, we stand against children's sexual abuse, media poisoning, we stand against intimidation, against evil.
Today, tomorrow, I pray for forgiveness, compassion
World Peace and true love
