International Women's Day,2013
‘Being alone was not good for Adam! '
So, God made Eve as his companion.
And Eve became the mother of humans;
Through labour pains, she brought forth her children!
His female partner was his better half;
Her weaker frame made her the weaker sex;
Eve procreated human race so well;
Yet, are women denied their place that's due!
'Tis sad to see women, the way they are!
They vie with men in every field and sphere;
At times, they are better than men perhaps;
But men are men and women are women!
God made each one so uniquely on earth;
Each one had gifts to suit their wants and needs;
But Eve is yet to get her rights complete;
Society won't give her security!
The glory of woman remains untold;
Her love and care of children is so great;
Her sacrifice for family's sake is much;
As wife and mother, she's incomparable!
Will not the world realize this strong truth?
Respect women for doing their duty;
Allow the female child to be born safe;
The world cannot progress with women harmed.
Let society then change its attitude;
The girl-child's boon, not bane to human race;
Protect women and let them live in peace;
Wipe out the heinous crimes against women.
The womb cannot be tomb for those unborn!
Women should not kill babies as they wish;
Preserve the sanctity of human life;
Can you think of a world without women?
‘Happy International Women's Day,2013!
