The Power of Woman

The Power of Woman


The power of woman can hardly be denied
For thousands of years men erred as they tried
to keep this power in a domestic place
confined to bearing children, cooking, and lace

But women have eyes and they could see
there would come a time when they too would be free
to express their minds and their hearts about how things should be
to enter the cold bastions of men and rip to shreds the unjust decree
then to build a new civilization of peace, justice, self fulfillment and equality
This movement soon spread from land across the sea

After many hardships, failures, and success
so many notable women achieved their best
Still waging the fight; for old men have passed on
a legacy to their sons from a time long gone

Women are the strongest in this so called human race
They have made our world a more survivable place
Reaching out to other women in forgotten lands
To lift and strengthen them with loving hands
Without women, all civilization would surely fall
but God gave them the most powerful weapon of all
They have fought and won their battles from the very start
with the greatest power known to mankind – a woman’s heart.

“We pass by potentially great friends, compatible business, cultural, and political exchange partners, and possible perfect mates everyday and FATE NEVER causes us to meet them, in a safe environment for a long enough time to discover that we like each other. We are programmed by Hollywood films and music and media stars to reject anyone who does not immediately meet our usually misguided standards. Perhaps that is a fact of life and may even be a instinctual human trait, but we know it fails to recognize a more developed and current human state. I personally have tried the pen-pal, friends, social networking, dating, matching, and marriage sites for many years with some temporary success, but they did NOT meet my most important expectations, needs, wants, desires, and goals. Their concept is good, but misdirected. It is hard enough to deal with the random odds, the random chance, the fickle fate, and the chaos in the real world; so why extend it into the virtual world. My future websites take into account these social networking and dating/match-making site short-comings, their trial-and-error approach, their best intentions, their best concepts, and their best practices and adds a structure to give nature an intelligent helping hand.

I have NO doubt that each of us can do some small or BIG things to stop violence; raise better children; stop violence against women; stop drugs and alcohol abuse; ostracize the ignorant conservative politicians and their controllers, who want to take the world backwards in the misused name of traditional values; raise your voice, your pen, your blog, and your web site to stomp out racists and religious bigots -- do NOT be silent (your silence implies consent); stop global threats and human suppression by countries of their own people and their threats to other nations and territories; remove the causes of terrorism; help capture or kill terrorists and dangerous criminals; create global friendships with appreciation for global cultures find ways to communicate effectively with people, who speak other languages; give aid and care for others in disasters; get rid of world poverty, disease, starvation, illiteracy and ignorance, rape, child abuse, pedophilia, and the rampant abuse of our globe and the protective atmosphere. Help immigrants, seeking a better life and trying to support their families, to do so. Make a legal path for illegal immigrants seeking to do the work that you and I reject, etc. Do not accept the globe the way it is. We can make it better. Just do something! Even a small thing. Any action you take, no matter how small, will set off ripple effects that will reverberate around the world. Courage is not the absence of fear, but overcoming your fears.
