‘Without woman’

I wrote this on my Facebook wall on December 30th 2012;

The atrocities against the better half of our species has long afflicted me. I have spoken out about violence against women many times over the years, yet the issues get worse, society continuously gets more numb. I pray that one day the world will wake up and see all the damage it has done. Much love to the brave women of India and of the rest of the world who have sacrificed their lives to reveal the injustice that plagues them every day. I will continue in my activism to help bring about true equal rights and safety for all.

My sisters, I dedicate my latest poem to you;

Without woman, we are at our ultimate end
For without, who is left to defend?
To rape is the tyranny of her body
To scorn is the absolute disgrace of her soul
For nature was crying alone…when told
Without exacting revenge, she places herself back to her feet
She walks forth, never knowing defeat
Equal rights, are many paces ahead
She never gives up, as she knows
Without her, men know no ends.
