Should a woman strive to be equal
To so different a creature as a man?
What does equality means then?
That she can do all that a man can?

And in doing everything that a man can do,
Has she become "it?"
I imagine that a world of only men
Would not interest me one bit!

For, are men better managers
Of people, things or money?
What is it that keeps a family going
Why do small boys need their Mommy?

For women are made to handle much more;
Do many things simultaneously.
Most handle two jobs, a home and their work
And balance both relatively painlessly.

Why is it then that men seem to yearn
For a woman to "complement them?"
Is it true that a man with no woman behind
Will have difficulty reaching momentum?

In his career, his life, his emotional state;
Incomplete without a Spouse;
A life missing something can be empty and cold
Like a home that is just a house.

Equality then, is the chance, not the work
Allowing each choice of activity.
Equality means that it's each to his own
Ability, dreams, creativity.

"We each have our own way of living in the world, together we are like a symphony.
Some are the melody, some are the rhythm, some are the harmony
It all blends together, we are like a symphony, and each part is crucial.
We all contribute to the song of life."
...Sondra Williams

We might not always agree; but TOGETHER we will make a difference.
