Teach your daughter this:

You are empowered 

If your bank account is

surplus and sufficient,

Your house help is

Regular and efficient,

If you are well-trained,

On raising your profit

quotient,

And no one dares to

Stop or question,

Your spending decision.

You are empowered

If you walk to work

Without being taunted

Or made to feel guilty

To not first give birth;

But instead encouraged

To up your own worth,

And decide if you are

Ready to bring

A life on earth.

You are empowered,

If you have your

Own house and

Medical insurance,

Not empty promises,

or false ‘future’

assurance.

You are empowered,

If you are not distracted

To ‘appease’ as

An object of beauty,

Rather raised with

self -defence skills

And busy raising

Your immunity.

You are empowered

If your effort is

Rewarded,

Your results applauded,

But most of all,

Your smile is tear-proof,

You enjoy being

Your truly unique self,

Not pressured to be

A colour, a height,

A certain weight,

That you need

To ‘improve’.

You are not empowered

If you are obsessed,

To be accepted by others,

or

Give yourself up,

Just to be 'approved'.

Good Morning

Choose and align your thoughts.
The day has dawned


Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Match intent
With values high,
Align them with words
And realise them
In efforts and deeds.

Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Once more feel
The quality
Of the words
On your tongue.
Taste their truth,
Savour their flavour.
Some don't need
To be voiced
Right away;
Some never at all-
Use discretion for all.

Let negative thoughts
Perch and fly away
Like the birds,
Don't nestle them
Or turn them to words.

Listen to a prayer,
Keep your mind clear
Focused and well- lit,
With hope and effort.

Make the day brighter,
The mind to the Self
Cannot be an enemy
Rather make it
Freer, friendlier,
Focused, calm, brighter,
Like the sky in summer.

Good Morning, good day!
