For she is a woman

Sudeshna B Baruah writes a poem dedicating it to all the women in the world.

She can blow like a gentle breeze,
But she can raise a storm too
For she is a woman.

She can raise her children with the milk from her breasts
May let her eyes miss the naps to attend to her sick child
But she use her authority to slap them when they go astray
For she is a woman.

She will put up a brave front in times of crisis
Can stand as a strong pillar behind her man
But, she can also cry buckets of tears.
Sometimes for, and sometimes without a reason
For she is a woman.

She will wake up in the wee hours,
To dirty her hands in a thousand odd jobs.
Stack bricks on her head
Bend with her sickle
To cut grass
But, she can also surprise you with her boardroom skills.
For she is a woman

You may not realise it
Or take her strength for granted.
Try digging into a thousand of reasons to malign her
To label her a "fallen woman"
But, you cannot deny she is the reason for your existence
For she is a woman.
