Lift Your Hand and Change The World

Please raise your hand to a woman
With a cold glass of choice in your hand
To salute her sacrifice and dedication
Her magnificent beauty inside and out
Please raise your hand with a woman
To assist her with your children
To wash some dishes
Or to cook the family meal
Please raise your hand for a woman
To defend and protect her from wanton ignorance
To honour the magical essence of her being
Allowing her to grow and flourish
Please raise your hand for future women
Teach your children respect
How to treat and be treated
Be their example, their guiding light
Please raise your hand in a woman’s
That together we create community
And harmony, love and peace
Encroach razor territory and overrun the world
For ourselves and following generations
Raise your hands against violence
