Close my eyes

If I close my eyes
will I dream a world
where I will be safe
no matter what I wear?

Where my daughter
breaks through the glass ceiling
promoted on acceptance
and ability?

Where my mother
will be valued
even beyond
her child bearing years?

Where a woman’s worth
in parliament
isn’t measured by her dress size
and her preference to give birth?

If I close my eyes
can I dream a world
of equality for all?
Closing, closing…

true equality for all starts at home…don’t raise your sons to be more entitled than your daughters…

Hi there
I write poetry and stories, paint, take photos and make films…I’m learning singing, electric guitar and am at art school…
art is my heart song…wanna sing it with me ?

big love
Sharon

    Dream that dream Sharon.
    Voice, accent, hair colour, sexual preference, yadda yadda, are all so bloody inconsequential in the scheme of things

    I almost know how it feels from your perspective, when’s the last time you saw a bear in the managers office. I’ll use this as my motivation, I’ve got no intention of ever wearing a tie but if I get dancing on that glass ceiling I wanna make them all wear bear suits.

  • better that than a mini skirt bear…glass ceilings being what they are…xxx
