WOMEN EMPOWERMENT


I was moved within
When I saw that scene
Of Congolese women on my screen,
Raped and damaged for the lust of man
Controlled and frightened
To fit their plan

And then next day a new documentary
Young women around the World
sent afar to a promised new life
And yet waking up solitary
in the sex trade
A business wholly man-made!


Is the answer education
or a new code of morality
To change the pattern of the nations
To speak to men, to look anew
Let go old ways and recognise you
And your rights!

I see that already one woman fights
Has built a sanctuary to protect you
and set her sights
On Empowering you with Love and care
To turn things around, whilst you are there,
Take in the Light


Love my sisters, Love and pride
Sent to you from the other side
Of this our planet, where woman and man
Should feel mutual respect for each of their roles
In the greater plan!
