Twinkling stars marching in March
a sky of illusions, a sea of hope.
Hardened souls scarred but hopeful
taking the streets on Women’s Day
claiming equality of rights,
opportunities and duties for all
respecting diversity in the world
fighting to achieve human equity.

and women who had abortions
cannot clearly think because of

and listen to what they have to say
before some of you start to
Let’s all be twinkling stars for equity
everyday, not just on Women’s Day.
