Today is not my day!

Today is not my day!


March 8, 2015
I don’t care if people find me smart or inept
Call me rude, polite or modest
I’ve played the roles as the world defined
For over three long decades
And let honour, love and betrayal
All take their toll on me
Lack of identity and living others’ lives
Was my doom, I learnt
It’s only when I shed them all
That I was re-born a
WOMAN!
That was not a moment, nor a day
It was a process, a gradual evolution
It is a feeling, a sensation
I experience every waking second
Now I am a daughter, sister, mom, wife
Neighbour, citizen, colleague and more
But I live as ME in all my roles
I love myself and celebrate my uniqueness
Every single day and night
And not on just March the 8th!

    Indeed, we celebrate womanhood on every single day. But, it is good to have one day for concerted focus on the issues.
