                               Women Inspire Change : International Women's Day


When I gaze in the mirror
a figure reflects back in fear
a pair of eyes , blue
more questions and no clue
a aquiline nose , inherited
from a father inebriated
thin lips , bereft of a smile
words marooned on an isle
Lower your eyelashes O! daughter
Oft echoes  from mother.

As I gaze in the mirror
the facial terrain are your
O father!  Stare back I will
O mother! take a chill pill.
but a mind inside 
is mine , needs no guide.
As i will walk
alone , with no-one to stalk.
On my chosen path
I will face the smile or wrath 
of my life's hurdles

As I gaze in the mirror
an image morphs , clearer
as it spreads a beam of light
a grin, words sprouting bright.
I stare back at me 
I inspire myself with glee
I adore myself as a treasure
as I have battled  for sure
to become me and be myself
God asked : Do you need help?

Do not wait for a man to pronounce a woman as his equal.
We are happy and satisfied in our own flaws and inequalities. Five unequal fingers constitute a hand which  picks up things .

 Words , proverbs , books and sermons will only inspire but the inspiration has to be inhaled  and  felt in the mind and heart to change for the better. There is no better person to inspire than self. So whom are we waiting for? Be your own friend , guide philosopher, crutch and band-aid.


Thanks you Corinne and Write Tribe for the fantastic seven fun-filled days of learning and laughter.

                             I’m celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day by blogging for the #WomenInspire Campaign sponsored by USC’s masters degree in social work program. Join the blog carnival to honor a woman who has inspired you!

USC'S Women Inspire Campaign

There is a latent 'Shero' in every woman and she should bring the 'Shero' in forefront to show to the world that she is not ' weaker sex'. Woman , be your own 'shero'  and carve your own path and be master of your own destiny.
