“If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire”.- George Monbiot. Nov 7, 2011
oh beautiful, beautiful African woman
Hard but soft on the inside
Submissive but not subject to circumstances.
Left the familiar territory of her father’s abode
To the house of another man
To a whole new territory
A whole new phase
The phase of childbirth
Back darkened by harsh rays of the sun ☀
Works day and night
Up early, sleeps late
Knees hard and rough from kneeling to pray
Countless nights she’s on her knees
Praying for her husband
Praying for her children
She never stops praying till she dies
Praying for peace amongst her offsprings
Praying to God to keep her man
Mother to both husband and children
She takes on the burden of the family
She’s worried for everyone
She’s always there for them
Yet she is not paid for her work
She is not awarded for giving her all
She’s given no medal at all
Her reward is way beyond material
Her joy is in seeing everyone happy
Her heart swells with pride at the sound of her husband’s laugh
Her children’s smiles are her reward
Her family’s happiness is a balm to her wounds.
Dear African woman, you are many things in one.
A rare gem, a jewel of inestimable value, a mother to all
Dedicated to the African woman
Happy International Women’s day ❤
Love –Mo‘ ❤
