Women, oh women! Let me tell you a secret.
You don’t have to be the best,
please take some rest.
Don’t let others fool you in a race,
take one step at a time to pace.
World will put you in a bracket.
Do not forfeit,
Do not conceit.
Open your wings and fly,
and take yourself to a new high.
Discover where you shine,
and age like a fine wine.
You are a woman – tell yourself proudly,
no man can put you in a boundary.
You are a thundercloud charged with lightning,
with halos around, oh, so shining!
