#5 Woman Power

Woman Power

She is the power on the field
Whose hard toil yields
Both a source of livelihood
And a sense of satisfaction.

She realizes her potential
Which is unbiased by gender discrimination.
She is driven by self belief
And is supported by unfathomable determination.

Yes, she is the mistress of households.
Please all behold.
With immense courage she lifts herself up
For the task most tough.

Each drop of sweat in her forehead
Is a symbol of her passion
Which can never shatter her
Spirit of driving away commotions.

She draws inspiration from
The animals grazing in the field
Which run where she directs
Like herself by that supreme power

Never ever suppressed by
The responsibilities which she can bear.
This is the quality for which
She is most admired.

  1. “What do you fear, lady?" [Aragorn] asked.
    "A cage," [Éowyn] said. "To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”
    ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
