Happy International Women’s Day!
To me, my daughter, my mum, sister, friends and all women close and far 🙂 Let’s celebrate every woman- appreciate them, love them, celebrate them, acknowledge them and treat them well! In still not perfect world, let’s make a wave of change, big bold change and help us become more equal society- where woman has same right and opportunities in life!
My favourite poems to celebrate women
Remember, Woman, you were born
life giver, miracle creator, magic maker.
You were born with the heart of a thousand mothers,
open and fearless and sweet.
You were born with the fire of Queens & conquerors,
warrioress blood you bleed.
You were born with the wisdom of sages & shamans,
no wound can you not heal.
You were born the teller of your own tale,
before none should you kneel.
You were born with an immeasurable soul
reaching out past infinity.
You were born to desire with passion, abandon,
and to name your own destiny.
Remember, Woman, remember
you are more than you can see.
Remember, Woman, remember
you are loved endlessly.
Remember, Woman, your power and grace,
the depth of your deep sea heart.
Never forget you are Woman, divine,
as you have been from the start.
-Reese Leyva “Remember, Woman”

Oh, “Phenomenal Woman” is one of my favorite poems of all time! To hear it in her own voice is incredible. “Remember Woman” is new to me and it is simply lovely. My favorite part is “You were born the teller of your own tale, before none should you kneel.”
Sending love to all the women in my life! <3
Isn’t it great?! 🙂 I just recently discovered it and I simply love it!!!!
Love to all the women!!!!
Happy Women’s Day to you! What a wonderful selection of poems, thank you for sharing!
And to you too!!! 🙂
This kind of reminds me of Tupac. I feel like he was ahead of this movement back in the 90’s.
And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but you gotta keep your head up
Wow, never heard that before- glad you shared it! Appreciate your comment Kurtis!
Happy International Women’s Day to You! The poem by Reese is absolutely beautiful. It captures so much strength of a woman in so few words. It is empowering. Thank you so much for sharing it and I hope that every woman embodies this strength today and always.
That’s right, we need this strengths! Thanks for your comment Lindsey!
Love the poems… they made me feel so proud that I’m a woman. This quote is for you lovely ladies all around the world “She believed she could, so she did.” Keep using your the most beautiful curve on your body – your SMILE.
Happy Women’s Day
Thanks Kasi! I love the quote as well- it gives so much power and confidence 🙂
