A POEM for Women!

A poem about violence against women and girls, for International Women's Day (8 March). This was taken from:

By Abena Busia

We are all mothers,
and we have that fire within us,
of powerful women
whose spirits are so angry
we can laugh beauty into life
and still make you taste
the salty tears of our knowledge-
For we are not tortured
we have seen beyond your lies and disguises,
and we have mastered the language of words,
we have mastered speech
And know
we have also seen ourselves raw
and naked piece by piece until our flesh lies flayed
with blood on our own hands.
What terrible thing can you do us
which we have not done to ourselves?
What can you tell us
which we didn’t deceive ourselves with
a long time ago?
You cannot know how long we cried
until we laughed
over the broken pieces of our dreams.
shattered us into such fragments
we had to unearth ourselves piece by piece,
to recover with our own hands such unexpected relics
even we wondered
how we could hold such treasure.
Yes, we have conceived
to forge our mutilated hopes
beyond your imaginings
to declare the pain of our deliverance:
So do not even ask,
do not ask what it is we are labouring with this time;
Dreamers remember their dreams
when they are disturbed-
And you shall not escape
what we will make
of the broken pieces of our lives.

Abena Busia is the daughter of the late Kofi Busia, a former Prime Minister of Ghana. In her poem “Liberation” she lyrically describes the plight of women and their power to overcome violence and be free.

Let's play this interesting GAME!

Samorost is an adventure game that is full of clicky puzzles and beautifully rendered scenes mixed with animations and various gadgetry. The soundtrack is delightful with sound effects and music to fit the mood of the surrealistic adventure. It's not very long, but will keep you busy for just the right amount of time. Enjoy this masterpiece of creativity and interactive art. There are two games so far Samorost and Samorost2. I've played the second one and I loved it.

Samorost 2 is about a little white gnome whose dog has been kidnapped by the aliens. Your mission is to rescue the poor puppy.

Here you can find tricks and hints to play the game. Have lots of fun! Tell us how you liked the game... leave us a message.

That’s What Friends Are For

Performed by Elton John, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight and Steve Wonder

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For/In good times and/in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my hearts
And then if you can remember

** Repeat three times

Well, my dear friend Elsita..... Keep smiling, keep shining......Knowing you can always count on me, for sure!
