Imagine a world without a woman

(International Women’s Day 2017)
A world without women.
A tasteless state.
A flowerless world.
A world without colours.
A world filled with imperfection.
A world without the noise of children.
A world void of beauty.
A world void of pleasure.
A world void of meaning.
A woman, the strength you often ignore.
A woman, the nourisher of your body.
A woman, the light in your darkness.
Bold,  courageous, yet gentle, but misunderstood.
Creator, nurturer, inventor, motivator, fearless, carer.
Giver of life, teacher, physician, manager, multiplier.
A world without you is a deafening SILENCE!
