Wake up, Woman~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa


 

 

Wake up, Woman

woman was created, second born.
not from feet, so as to trample on;
not from the crown, to be reigned upon;

but from a man’s ribs, to be equal.
yet, abused and treated so casual,
made to do all the duties manual.

family is a woman’s weakness
becomes her invisible harness,
until, she dries up from the harshness.

yet, I believe women are abused,
because they, somehow, allow so.
fight! and the control is reduced.
we are not born, to be slaves of woe.

mothers and wives, so do sacrifice,
to keep all her family suffice.
yet, young ones say, it destroys them more,
to see their mothers suffer torture.

we, as women, have the right of choice.
there’s a way, let them hear our voice.
if we really open our eyes,
there is no need to live with the lies.
