A poem by Sharifa Ahmadi

God has given a secret power to women
Which begins in childhood
Baby girl is cuter than baby boy
Baby girl learns talking, walking faster than baby boy
Girl grows faster than boy

A woman can beat a man if she wants
There’s a saying about mothers
They move a cradle with one hand
Shake the world with the other
No man can to do this

If a woman dreams her future
No one can stop her
A woman can make her small home a heaven
Or a hell to others

Better to respect women anywhere
So you’ll be respected everywhere
