Rob Milton’s 2 poems for International Women’s Day 2011 in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Rob Milton wrote 2 poems to celebrate women of our country for International Women’s Day 2011 in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

In the photo and video below, Rob Milton reads his poems to Barb Goosehead and Tiah Seward

WOMEN

Women are our mothers, our aunties, our grandmothers

Ones who bear the pains of birth

Birth of our sisters, sisters who become wives

Then become mothers, mothers to our nieces

Nieces who we will protect,

Protecting our future loving mothers,

Our future loving aunties, our future loving grandmothers

The mothers who we all look up to

The women who we all love


I LOVE A WOMAN

I love a woman who fights for her rights

One who wear jeans, not a skirt and tights

I love a woman who knows what she wants

One who spread happiness, and not one who haunts

I love a woman who is open to new things

One who dances, laughs and sings,

I love a woman who makes me smile

One who argues but just for a while

I love a woman who is down to earth

One who brings joy today, and ever since birth

I love a woman who says “I can do it!”

One who doesn’t when to quit

I love all women, and that is that

Ones who say hi and will stop to chat

In the next photo and videos, Rob reads his poems to a group of women in Vancouver Downtown Eastside
