To the symbol of strength on Her day

killed in the womb, touched without permission,
for Her, what’s immoral was forever society’s decision…
beaten and molested, sneered when She bled,
for ages condemned, abused and raped,

in a Man’s World, Her story will be told as a fight for survival,
forged through fire, like a Phoenix, she rises,
espousing the scorch, no matter how brutal

She doesn’t need empowerment, (doesn’t) require your validation,
in Herself she is complete,
in Herself, she is His finer Creation

Let’s take this day, to express to Her, our gratitude,
Love and respect Her for whoever in our life she is,
identify Her unparalleled fortitude
