suffragette is but a word
its meaning perhaps
now wants to be heard

so many are rising
rising up to protest
using our voices
from the multitudes no less

we all carry within
a feminine side
it comes from our mothers
who we learned to abide

it was about loving and caring
for others and more
it was about treating with fairness
not settling a score

may we organize now
with our hearts all aligned
and protest the differences
so our love is combined

the strength of love
in its wholeness IS
the power to create change
