STAND

Written by Zandile Nkompela our Cape Town Girl Impact Coordinator

 

I stand here not for me

I stand here for the unsung sheroes who do not get such platforms

I stand here for the women who think they don’t deserve this platform

I stand here for the girls who dream of such platforms

I stand here to salute the forgotten shereos before our time

I stand here to summon women who think and say its too late and its over

I stand here to decode unleash and unlock dreams for our girls

I stand here to thank the formidable women who prepared the way for us

I stand here to say rise woman, you are still alive

I stand here to pass the baton to the rising young leaders after us

I stand here not because I feel like being the centre

I stand here because I have to for those who looking for one of their own to look up to

I stand here to say well done faithful servants who stood before our time

I stand here because I am created for a time such as this

I stand here to inspire; implore and impact those who come after my generation and more

I stand here because they stood

I stand here so we can stand

I stand here so that they will stand

I say stand women stand

I say stand girl child stand

So stand….
