Keening inside maybe, but stoic and sturdy

You, Woman of Steel, are seen everyday!

In a workplace, in an office, in a bank or hospital, 

 In a home, in an airplane cockpit or in a school!


You are the woman balancing a kid on the pillion,

Trying to beat the clock, parting smudged with vermillion,

Oil in your hair, waiting for the light to change to green

Not the one on the Billboard or the one on the TV screen…


Avid for life, averse to strife,

A mother, lover, sister or wife

Avid for love, averse to any bend

A daughter, a guide, a life-long friend ! 


Avid for love, Avid for life!
