Ellen Joyce and Catherine … Mighty Women

We watched as the world clapped for them

We breathed a relief over their loud victories

We hoped high as we felt meekness was fixed

We echoed the freedom of mighty all women

We hold our breaths with excited jubilation

We mother the broken villages to stability

Ellen Joyce and Catherine ….. Mighty Women

We lobbied endless in West Africa for a deliverer

We ran and slept in the open streets for years

We destroyed our own kith and kin like a plague

We killed men of same tribe who lived near us

We burnt churches with living people in them

We fought ethnic civil war that made no reason

Ellen Joyce and Catherine ….. Mighty Women

We stand on the precipice of a women ruled world

We lay the stage for concrete peace non violence

We oversee from the bleakest to the glamorous

We take in our strides those rejected and frail

We settle discontent in the jaws of massive guns

We entrench democracy for tiny feet yet unborn

Ellen Joyce and Catherine ….. Mighty Women
