Am i my Sister’s, keeper

L. B. Mek



Well, fact is

My sister’s never needed

A keeper

Just space, enough

Encouragement, enough 

To be, all

They ever wanted to be!


Demyelisation, regressive etiolation


We empower dreams, while


Paths to belonging’s, serene


Desaturation, insomniac insinuation.


Quotas to dictate what’s innate 

While quoting hope as architect

Words that champion, enabling 

Same alphabet chaining equality

To realms of denied opportunity.


Scorned ego’s n scorched heart’s 


Distrust utilised to tunnel divisive



Yet, still

Brothers n Sisters aligned, as

In our dreams, we dare envision 

A oneness, we fear unattainable 


In each March 8th, we celebrate 

That fantastic ideal is becoming 

An inevitability realised, tangible 

Yet, still

We need not wait, till March 8th

To support, empower and appreciate 

Those deserving lady’s, in our lives!

        History has not smiled well on this half of humanity that we hail as mothers, sisters, daughters and wives. Their flowers too soon fallen and forgotten. Without their support and indeed triumphs stolen by past acclaimed heroes we would not be where we are. So many valiant women warriors now lost to time, courage they did not lack nor compassion that men did not possess. A wonderful and well deserved write so well put.

          somewhere, you have a published book of awesome works of art that some may know as poetry. I just know it.
