Zeitgeist… ‘Woman’ Spirit of the Age.



Zeitgeist… ‘Woman’ Spirit of the Age.

Inchoate though her ideas are thought to be

And zealous her passions deemed,

Impetuous she’s told are her heart, her souls desires

Because equality is of what she dreams.

Though daily she is chased by life, by man

And resolutely told to mind her place,

She cannot neglect the gifts she has

That would help transform the human race.

And so picking up her shield of justice

Raising her sword of faith, of truth,

She sets forth upon her journey

To verify her place, reveal the proof.

That her life it has great meaning

And her voice needs to be heard,

And to force her to live a life subservient

Is totally nonsensical, it’s absurd.

For she has been created, commissioned

To ensure man is not alone,

Not so she could fetch and mend and carry

Not so she can cook and clean his home.

But to walk with him an equal

An ally, a trusted colleague, a friend,

A life partner for all seasons

Someone on whom he can depend.

But man’s fears see only difference

See only a stranger in female guise,

His lust for power and position sees only opponent

Sees only a victim, or trophy, a prize.

Man never sees her as he truly ought

As one with her own purpose, her own mind,

He never sees her for what she is really worth

And thus to life’s true meaning he remains completely blind.
