We are the POWER

Even with our tied hands and our stitched mouths. They need us. Our presence and existence is equally needed for the world to move on. Without us, the world comes to a standstill. Woman is power.

Congratulations on your first post. And yes, the world would stand still without women. And after that, the human race would be extinct. That is why we buddy together to encourage each other so that we can build a better world. Thank you for sharing your message.
Karibu, karibu. I am super exited to see you:)

Hello, Felister,

Welcome to World Pulse! I'm so happy that a new voice from Kenya is rising up!

What a powerful first post, dear sister. There is truth in your message. Even with our tied hands and stitched mouths, the world cannot deny women are powerful. This world needs us to rise up and take our places because we have a right to be here.

Looking forward to reading more from you, dear! We would like to get to know you more! Welcome again to our growing sisterhood!

Sister Felister,

Karibuni World Pulse! Thanks for sharing your first poem with us and what a powerful poem! One word sums it all, "Woman is power" for there is not life, no society, no world that can do without us.

We are the world! Disenfranchised, demeaned, Abused, we have never stopped to give life. But we shall also rise to say "No" to all kinds of injustices for as women we are "power."
Thank you for that reminder. I encourage you to keep those empowering poems coming.
