She takes too long in the mirror,
That’s beauty.
She puts on high heels,
That’s a walk.
She cooks to feed the nation,
That’s a mother.
She takes care of everyone in the family,
That is patience.
She talks in the boardroom and everyone listens,
That is leadership.
She carries her or him on her back,
That is comfort.
She smiles when she’s hurting,
That is strength.
She goes through labour pains,
That is life.
Happy International women’s day.
