A Woman's World: A Woman's Worth (Poem of Dedication)

Updated on January 26, 2017

Power to the People "From Sea to Shining Sea"

This poem came to me after my last article that I wrote about equality. My article focused on the present turmoil that is happening right now, and the fight that we, as humans, are going through in regard to moving forward not back in time.

As we all watched on television-Saturday, January 21, 2017, "The Women's March," drew crowds of many protesters trying to get a message out. It was an inspirational day that will be remembered forever in our history. It was important not only for the message many women, men, and celebrities spoke on, but it had a strength in its process, rise in its purpose, and human compassion in its body of people. I heard nor seen any violence, only love for beautiful differences that we all possess.

The message stands and stood for America. The America that our new government is trying to take down with every lie they get up and tell. The thing is; we all know they're lies, and if you are denying that, you are part of them not America.

This protest started out to bring women together for the cruel and senseless comments of a tyrant we must now accept as our leader. However, I WILL NOT BE MADE TO ACCEPT THAT! He is sitting upon a seat that doesn't rightfully belong to him, and we all know this. And as this march started in hopes that women would come together to find and fight for empowerment, it turned into a day of HOPE for America's citizens, and for people all over the world. It was LOVE.

Path of purpose is all

that it is. Rain doesn’t

stop an undivisible trend.

Path of resilience in all

It does; It fights to wake

to rise above.

Purpose of power that no

one sees; It will one-day


It shall someday


Purpose in life, but not

Just its; it is the pride of

everyone fought with grit.

Destiny will lead its uncertain

task. Time can make it want

to collapse.

Destiny is its to detail. To talk

to show, to teach, to compel…

and it shall rise and propel

ahead; never to lose its

shadow of dread.

For shadow of dread will

always be, and this becomes

its own Pillar of strength you see...

      Great comments and encouragement!

      I must say that I, in the past, have never cared as much about politics as I have these past few years. It seems crucial now that everyone get involved with the crooked way this man, who degrades women, got in this high power seat, and try to stop him from total destruction.

      One day, I hope to be able to put my worries behind me and not feel compelled to get involved anymore. I liked the time when I was confident enough to leave the issues to our President. I'm very humble in the way I like to live. :)

      Thank you, MizB, MsD, Venkat, and last, but not least, my first friend here, Jodah.

      Very inspirational article on Women's empowerment and their determination to achieve equal rights by taking to protest marches and speaking out. They should continue their efforts to achieve their goals. These kinds of articles and encouraging messages can boost their spirits to a large extent. Keep on inspiring people, Missy. My best wishes to you.

      Keep speaking out, Missey! and thanks to Bill and Whunu for chiming in. My thanks for their encouragement. I don't think Bill has anything to fear because this movement precedes even the Civil War, in fact, I did a paper on this years ago in college. Now we are being strengthened by the spirit of the Divine Feminine whose aim is the genders equalizing and working together, rather than dominance by either one. There will never be peace on earth as long as one gender dominates and uses the other.

      Your poem is a lovely description of the efforts of strong women everywhere to accomplish this. Your examples are perfect, especially young Malala.

      Women of the world should all be revered by all and without our respect, such injustice cannot be acceptable in society. Women of this world should all be held as equal to men and there have been many reasons and women who have been responsible for this advancement of civilization. Men would have a hard time becoming pregnant and then after birthing, raising children, by themselves. More respect should be given to the most well deserving parent of this world..our women. Bless mothers everywhere. Well done my friend.whonu

      My greatest fear is that "the movement" will die on the vine because of a lack of central organization, like the "Occupy" movement did. Awareness must be raised constantly. Those who oppose must be met head on...and it must continue daily until the voices are heard and change happens. Keep speaking your heart, my friend.
