The Woman Of Today - Poem by Kate Lechoe

The women before fought for the woman of today,
In order for her to be in better position,
A position where her voice could be heard by others,
Her views could be seen as of substance,
Her qualities could befit that of a leader.
The woman of today.

A woman is a human being with feelings,
A person who can make mistakes like a man,
But why do you condemn her when she strays?
Why bring out the flaw to be ‘because she is a woman’?
If so, then why do women lead some homes much better?
They are strong and can do anything that their hearts are in it.
Because the woman of today is capable of so much,
Much more than we anticipate.

As a woman of today,
Strive to be excellent and competent,
Because your maker has bestowed so much in you,
To change the society and the world.
Yes, a woman of today,
A woman of strength.

    fresh air that...!

    ....Why bring out the flaw to be ‘because she is a woman’? ....
    when one sees the media and the endless stream of gender related issues...its refreshing to see one stand up with an aim a mission
    nice lines
