i  wake each dawn exposed
stripped of  all pretense
anyone would see what  i am
thus i  must ever sleep alone

i  step outside my door
wrapped in deception’s raiment
allowing no one
to glimpse
the naked truth of  me

should you look too long
i  gather my illusions tight around me
reflecting that which you think i  should be
clothed in nothing but fantasy

my dress of  false conformity
leggings woven out of  secrets and lies
shoes shiny with your expectations
a sparkling necklace of  insincerity

if  i  should meet someone
who can ignore my desperate conjuring
yet still smile and reach for my hand
i  will finally become
the me  i was meant to be

♀♀♀ International Women’s Day ♀♀♀ 8 March 2015 #makeithappen

2015 Theme: MAKE IT HAPPEN

If every International Women’s Day event held in 2015 includes girls in some way, then thousands of minds will be inspired globally.

Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8th. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Organizations, governments, charities and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.

“Make It Happen” is the 2015 theme of the internationalwomensday.com website and this has been widely used by hundreds of organizations including schools, universities, governments, women’s groups and the private sector. Each year the United Nations declares an overall International Women’s Day theme. Their 2015 theme is “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!”.  Many organizations develop their own themes that are more relevant to their local contexts. For example, the European Parliament’s 2015 theme is “Empowering Women and Girls through Education”.

lyrics ~

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

I’ve made mistakes before but I know I’m not perfect
It’s okay ’cause who could ever be
As long as I did my best
It don’t matter what no one says ’cause deep down in my heart
I got the power to make it all happen

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

At times I may just feel like my back is to the wall,
I hold my head up high
And keep on standin’ tall
I know that my back is covered
Because we have each other
And we’re down for whatever.
If you hear me throw your hands up

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Sometimes life may get you down
But you better hold your ground
Can’t nobody live your life but you
Stay true to who you are
And always follow your heart
Your heart, your heart

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never say die
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Throw your hands up if you know that you’re a star
You better stand up if you know just who you are
Never give up never come too far
Girl Power Girl Power!!

Prompt No. 4:  Animal;   Form:  Concrete Poetry;   Device: Enjambment
for   Writing 201:   Poetry!
Blogging University Presented by
The Daily Post
on WordPress.com

at last!  a day when i  followed the prompt,  the form and the device!  although i  did stray to  “visual”  concrete poetry form { or poésie concrète in French,  i love the way that sounds }  rather than  “shape” ~ this happens to be my favorite poetry form plus i love the use of  enjambments.  i enjoy the form so much that it never matters to me if  what i write is any good or not.  {smile}  thank you,  Ben,  for such an exciting day of  writing!
