They are women and accept it so

They tell your stories to the world

Getting the first punch of pain

As they edit that story about a girl raped

A woman stripped, a mother brutalized

Or the 16 who die daily giving life to life

They identify mountains and climb them

They embark on journeys and complete them

They welcome loads and carry them

But they fall too

Stain themselves in the mud or dust

Make blind choices and take unneeded risks

But they dust themselves and start


Those who remain down wave a flag

About lessons to be learned and lived

For that is life

And a woman who knows she is a woman,

Will try to live the she life


To these and other women, who celebrate Women’s Day daily, through their brains, tears and laughter at Daily Monitor – well done and keep being women!
