A Poem for International Women’s Day

(courtesy of, writing poetry to help fight breast cancer)

Today is InternationalWomen’s Day and I would like to dedicate the following poem to my wife, mother, sister, mother-in-law, cousins, aunts, friends, and all the women on earth.

I truly hope that this poem helps bring awareness about women’s achievements and current struggles. Overall, I’m also hoping that it will remind all the men out there about the importance of all the women in their lives.
Women’s Day

It’s a time to celebrate,
all the women in our lives.
Our mothers and sisters,
daughters and wives.

We must remember,
to appreciate and respect.
With their beautiful hearts,
how our days they affect.

Each woman is gentle,
caring and kind.
We must respect,
both her body and mind.

Let’s acknowledge and celebrate,
all the things they achieve.
We encourage each one,
when we support and believe.

To their hardships and struggles,
we must open our eyes.
Act with compassion,
when we hear all their cries.

We must always love them,
and genuinely show.
This is the key,
for our relationships to grow.

The celebration begins,
when we are aware.
Our feelings and love,
every day we must share.
