Dear Womanhood

Dear Womanhood,

Thank you for your strength

For teaching me to hold my head high

For giving me the will to fight


Dear Womanhood,

You have made me cry

Because of you, I understand sacrifice

I understand fear and sorrow beyond the grasp of language


Dear Womanhood, 

You have given me joy

To look into the many faces so much like my own

Hopeful for the future we behold


Dear Womanhood,

Thank you for your pride

For teaching me to embrace the world

For the honor to stand beside the women I love most and speak our minds

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
