Why, I celebrate March 8th

L. B. Mek

Notice of absence from L. B. Mek
'fare ye well' kind friends



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.

                    A very sincere and truthful reply
                    Not to pluck the stars
                    But adorn the earth to revive her with highest respect
                    No words of moon
                    But truly a genuine smile
                    Great one dear Mek

                      such matters have no attendance sheet records
                      its our accumulative choices and actions
                      that curate the outcome of our efforts and sentiment's..
                      never to let, to help
                      keep that promise alive

                      • Neville

                        India Arie seems to have known a thing or two ... if one appreciates the cruciality of 'The unity of opposites' and a owns a decent set of scales to balance things on .. then they wont go far wrong ... but I digress .. .. so please excuse me,
                        .. I too extol the virtues of the fairer sex and like you, also strive to never be an encumbrance ........ not never in a month of Ladies Days ....... Neville ............................ ๐Ÿ™‚
