“When God created man and woman, he was thinking, ‘Who shall I give the power to, to give birth to the next human being?’ And God chose woman. And this is the big evidence that women are powerful.”-Malala Yousfazsai

Love is a labor

Amid the strains and spasms

Is found a life to savor

The quiet power

That is given to bloom

In a woman’s hour

The time is spent

Carrying and tending

to Hope, and to a greater extent


It is no easy task

Love is an action

Not a word

Not a picture

But something transferred

From one being to another

Her Story embracing

The child and the mother
