Woman In The Struggle - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

Raving voices
Up raised fists
Marching on shoulder to shoulder
In the Front line
Having slogans
Your snapshots are invisible

May be your energy
To be advanced
As a mountain of life

Being a mother and a wife
A sister and a friend
May be give a breath
To light up the torch

History of the struggle is
Not the struggle only of the men
But the picture of unseen and unwritten
Thousands stories behind

Capricious weakness
Image of the history
Until eliminate reality
It will be also a struggle
Within the struggle
You are invisible
