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.
