Woman ! YOU are phenomenal

Woman, you are phenomenal,
Don't let anybody tell you otherwise,
You laugh, weep, fail, you rise,
Within you abodes the womb of paradise.

You may have many forms, people call you by different names,
For some you are the Goddess, for others just a name.

You still smiled,imbibed,
Struggled and survived,
Holding on to your hopes and dreams of a better life,

A dream which every woman holds close to her heart,
A dream of being more than just a name, a dream which echoes her thoughts,

For it is now that we talk and the world listens,
For it is now that we reach for the stars and reclaim,

Because now we know, we are more than just a woman,
We are more than just a name,
Because in every woman resides a heart, a heart and soul which is phenomenal,
O' Woman, YOU are phenomenal.

P.S : Dedicated to all the phenomenal women of the world. Never believe that you are alone. Dream on, be happy and reach for the stars. We are in this together.
We are amazing, we are phenomenal.
