I read about the delight,
People exclaim how wonderful!
That a woman be nominated…
To run for president.
How sad! my heart screams!!!!
That we are still so archaic…
That women still have to break a ceiling,
That the men did create.
And then I am angered by the women…
Who have allowed the programmed thoughts to thrive…
Believing a woman’s place,
Is the home with work on the side!
The women who think they need to kowtow,
To the whims of every man;
That power resides in the male species,
And we should delight for any attention.
Being woman is hard when you need to break ceilings,
To simply be the best that you are.
Asking for assistance and guidance is a gift,
Not a weakness or sign of incompetence.
Change must be embraced now!
Best person for the job, for this life!
I challenge each of us to look at the program,
And decide if it’s worth it, if it’s relevant,
If it serves the highest good of our hearts.
So stepping off the soap box…
Bring on the times of this future.
Obliterate every glass ceiling,
And lets ask of ourselves to simply be the best we are.
