I Hail You Woman

I Hail You Woman 

I hail you woman, 

For your courage,  I hail you. 

I Hail you for you are fearless, selfless and unstoppable!

You bring life , you bring peace.

I celebrate you woman,  black,  coloured,  white. 

I celebrate your braveness in all circumstances, 

For you are that lioness that never looks back in fear, 

But forges her way ahead,  seeing only your goals,  your destination .

I celebrate you woman,  because your strength is invaluable, 

Your presence hushes babies, 

Your presence calms storms. 

I celebrate you woman,  mother of nations. 

I celebrate you woman,  for you carry the world on your shoulders.
