Warrior Woman

Poem by Neshni Naidoo

A celebration of Women, who have demonstrated their strength, their courage and resilience through the ages

We salute you.
We honour you.
We celebrate you during Women’s Month.


Wind whistles through the air
Whispering wise words in my ear
Wake up and wipe away
the web of lies you’ve spun
That you are not worthy
you are weak
your words don’t matter
you don’t need to speak

The blows, the wounds, the falls
They could not stop you
You have emerged triumphant
Stronger, wiser and powerful

Walk tall Warrior Woman
Wear your scars with pride
Your future beckons
And it is beautiful and bright
