Here I am with Women
Of all shapes, sizes, all colours and creeds
Today we are stood together
Against all atrocities against women
Violence, domestic abuse, rage and pain
Of a 100 nations in a 100 languages
Read, spoken, heard and sung
But we understood
We heard the song
The global voice that spoke to us all
And captured in just one voice
We have created a movement
To inspire, to change, to create and challenge
Patriarchy at its extreme core, at its very existence
Bringing in a renewed global vision
Of a brighter future for generations to come and those yet to follow
Those who will not follow the rules
And break the chains of Bondage
Of an enslavement of a nation
Of a social system full of flaws
Full of insecurity and unwanted demands
Dispelling the illusionary system that was built to control, built on demand
Which is now disintegrating, and is in flux
Leaving us all exposed to a new reality
Which we have initiated in this moment
Our very presence influences what we seek to create
Challenging, changing, and creating
The future which has not quite arrived
As were still shaping it
