Herstory comes alive every March
But one month to celebrate is not enough
So many still thrive
to be recognized
and yet are still deprived
of basic needs
and to honorably succeed.
This month of this year 2020
is filled with so many fears
only women know how to persevere
GBS said, “women are life’s force.”
and of course
They know to cohere
and to take action
Let me just mention a few
who knew exactly what to do
when times were blue.
Amelia Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt
Maria Montessori, Gwendolyn Brooks
Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou,
Jane Fonda, Princess Diana,
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor
Malala Yousafzai, Mae C. Jemison
Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton
Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey
Marie Curie, Katherine Johnson
and so many more to mention and honor.
This March will be a month to be remembered
because women will make the difference again.
