For You

A poem for all the girls and women in the world.

For You

Cynthia Ramirez, Writer

As the present turns to past

And the future turns to present


Giving so much to this world

With so little recognition


Every lesson that you teach

Is like a hidden gem 

So precious… 


Yet ignored by the other voices 



As the years of hard work build

And the seconds keep passing by 


I hope you know how much we appreciate you 


Even when the roads are narrowed

You pull strength from the gods

And come out stronger than before


You are loved


You are admired


You are valued 


You are what we need in this lonely world.
