Why, I celebrate March 8th



In this one, solitary day 

I celebrate 

history’s heroines

modernity’s champions

and those, who blessed my life

with their wisdom

of empathy, hilarity, sensuality 

gentleness, intelligence and grace


I make a wish, light 

a sincere heart’s

candle of hope, share

in their dream of equal, status 

in all things!

Choosing, to believe

it will become a deserved, reality

for every lady


till then, I will do my best


if I can’t be of much help

I can 

certainly strive, to never 


be a hindrance!


That’s what March 8th’s

promise, represents to me.
