Yes, we are women: full of love, full of demon

Yes, we are women, so hear us out
No, we are not going to loudly shout
Work harder we do, our lives throughout
For the same work men do less all-out

Yes, we are women, so hear us now
No, we may not be the household cash cow
Works harder we do, you may not avow
For the same results men do less somehow

Yes, we are women, we do like to brag
No, you got us wrong when you say we nag
We want to motivate you so that you don't slack
Our kids get stuff on things we once lacked

Yes, we are women, we like taking chances
No, we may not be good in balancing finances
We are unhappy when you have relapses
Football and fishing have numbed your senses

Yes, we are women, don't look us down
Offer advice we want, on things around
Good ideas we have, don't show your frown
When you make faces, we feel like clown

Yes, we are women, you cannot break us
We want you to think we are free of stresses
Let us whisper to you our true confesses
All we need deep down, is your caresses

Yes, we are women, and wise we are
The wisdom is born with hurt and scar
To husbands and kids we are like candy bar
After you eat it, wrapper thrown afar

To all women of the world…. Happy woman's day! Be strong.. be resourceful!

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
