When Women Speak: Poetry

Nadz
Posted April 15, 2013 from Jamaica

So I imagine I dream I create new worlds in my head Of late I have been dreaming more than normal I dream of women who inspire, women who lead I dream of women who bring justice, who search for the truth

So I imagine I dream Of late I have been seeing more visions than normal I envision a world of possibilities, of new and exciting things I envision women who are not afraid, who are courageous I see women who bring peace

So I imagine I dream Of late I have been laughing more than normal I have this song in my head and heart, which comes from knowing I know now that when women speak, the world is not content I know now that to silence a woman, is to silence a generation

So I know now That women must speak, they must connect For this generation and the ones to come Women must speak for the sake of new and unborn babies Women must speak, for the innocent and vulnerable will have no voice

I know now that when women speak, things change Mountains crumble, I know now that when women speak They light a fire, which burns bright and lights up lives, and smiles and hearts I know now that when women speak, they light a fire

Such a beautiful poem...when women speak, not only do things change but they change for better and greater things. Thanks again.

And I quite liked how you wrap up your poem. When we speak we light up a fire. It in turn lights up live and brings on so much more smiles. Beautiful.

Keep writing Aminah
