Poem: God Bless Females, Women and Girls
Females, Women and Girls
There are three things men don’t understand,
Three things they are confused about,
Three things that puzzle them;
Females, women and girls.
There are three things men are grateful for,
Three things they cannot do without,
Three things they will live to cherish;
Females, women and girls.
To mothers for their caring and loving heart,
To sisters for their concern and advice,
To ladies for their comfort and warmth;
God bless females, women and girls.
How would life be without them,
How would life be for men without them,
And how would I know the much am blessed,
If females, women and girls didn’t exist.
The above poem is a dedication to mothers, sisters and ladies for they do reflect the beauty of the world. Sadly, they are regarded as a weaker sex. Due to this myth they are oppressed, discriminated and sidelined. They hold no place in the society.
Throughout the ages, women have been termed as an asset. They hold no value as men view them as inferior. They have small brains as compared to men the reason they’re viewed as a weaker sex. None of these facts are true.
They do hold a place in the society. They are not limited to staying at home rearing children and doing other household chores. They play a vital role in the society, in the world. Even in the Holy Scripture, The Bible, God did use women. It signifies even God knows women are important as men.
Due to women being termed as inferior, the world has witnessed women oppressed and discriminated in every way possible. They are assaulted physically, sexually abused, trafficked as sex workers or housemaids, denied their rights plus other injustices women face at the hands of men. Girls as young as twelve-years are married to old women which is a shame. It is cowardlinesses for men to take advantage of women because they don’t want to appreciate the fact women are as intelligent as men.
This is the reason why the United Nations set November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against women. It is a reminder women are as special as men and we need to do something in order to stop abuse meted against women in whatever form. It is surprising in the 22nd century when the world has leaped in terms of technology and education that still men borrow barbarism from the early centuries when it comes to oppressing and discriminating women.
Those who think women are inferior should cite examples which justify women are the weaker sex. Women are as equal as men. They have a place in the society. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to look back at history and see women can do what men can do. As men we need to stop behaving as if this world is a masculinity world. Ever thought how the world would be if women never existed?
