Pink Slippers


She always wore pink slippers
They were her signature footwear
When one pair wore out completely
She quietly produced another

The neighbours thought it strange
But no one dared comment on them
If pink slippers were what she wanted
Then who were they to question her

Then one day realisation dawned
She had made it her goal in life
To make women aware of their rights
Pink slippers were the right reminder

When she died the female population
Of the town was seen sporting them
They believed that it was the only way
To pay tribute to her who had just died

She had used a simple but colourful way
To teach them that if they wanted success
They needed to display sisterly togetherness
And sporting pink slippers was just one method

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
