To the Lost
So many women,
Lost to time.
In a world of men,
Their lights in shadow,
We’ve left their memory to fade away.
The pedestal they deserve
We gave away.
Away to men who were so very wrong,
To men who took the freedom of others,
To men with brains, but no heart or humanity.
These men of history, and many more,
With their large shadows
Bury the names of women who were their equals.
Names that time and history have erased.
These women with minds as brilliant as those of they men with which they were forced to compete with,
These names which few know, but changed the course of history.
In remembrance of them,
To the women that were lost.
