The African Woman.



How beautiful you look?
How dark, chocolate like or light skinned is your skin tone?
You hail from a region Nature falls at your feet.
My African woman,
You are priceless, don't let anyone or any other race put a value on your worth.
They're simply implying you got a limit when you ought to be limitless,
Set a standard and not follow the standard that's set.

Irrespective of the foreign names you got,
I adore your African name.
Lupita, Amaka, Preye, Embelle, Amal, Agbani, Omotola, Tanyaradzwa, 
Damilola, Enuma, Tochukwu, Funmilayo, Toritseju, Limeni, Asiya, Meerah, 
Nanyombi, Sanaa and the list is never ending.
I love this, and I love the fact that you represent a culture the African way.

The way you struggle or worry about your hair.
And you know you don't need to hide under the shadows of cosmetics for a make up,
Cause your beauty is extricating.
The way your waist thrust from left to right,
No wonder the world is trying to be like you but you never see it.
The world is embracing the fashion culture of my African woman but still,
The world receives the glory.
Stand for your own and your people and tribe and your continent,
Take pride in what's yours.

And when you make that African food, the African way.
The fufu, ugba(African salad), kente or your jollof rice,
Exciting forms of thirst starts to kick in.
You are the mother of the world,
Wear your crown so highly on your head,
That's majestic for all to see.
You are a queen the African woman,
Don't give a b that right alone.
And put in line the same discipline and qualities to the coming generation of,

The African woman.

Heaven's Angel

Countless dreams of heaven, I’ve had but never get to see the big picture in motion. She oozes of heritage that gives life, One that gives life to the dying and eternity to the living.
She is of Selah, worthy to behold, You’re not of human that crown queen, But, Of goddess that make gods.
I wonder what she thinks of me? I’m having not to jump the gun and move faster than my shadow. I doubt she even knows this? I doubt she even knows what she’s worth? Does she have the problem of the coloured girl? How do you define a black woman’s worthiness to herself? Perhaps I’m the missing piece for her realisation. I often say this but this time I feel it different.
I hope she knows I want someone to talk to and listens, As it goes vice-versa, making for deep-level interactions. What is biology without chemistry? I crave telepathy interactions, I’m ready to risk it all again to have this. What is a bond without elasticity? And if I yet again lose myself, I’d live with the fulfilment of my pursuit of happiness.

Problem Of The Coloured Girl

Not once, not twice, Have I seen the coloured girl feel unappreciated or unworthy? Her traits and qualities have been overlooked, So she looks for things that don't need be. Sometimes I can't help but label them the cause of their problems, But yet again, I can't help but be the pillar to lean on.
Just the other day I told my friend how beautiful she looks, And she responded with; "Lool, thanks but not me". Wholeheartedly, that shit broke my heart as I stood on convincing grounds so she sees my point view, Sadly my efforts were rebuffed.
Who you are? I bet you don't even know. Where you are? I'm definite you don't know. Where you're going? It's hard for you to even know, Because you got the problem of being beautifully unworthy.
How beautiful you are?  You don't even know, You rather hang on to the standards of magazines and playboys without knowing you're playing yourself. Giving you reasons why you should hate this and embrace that, In the process making y…

1AM

It's 1AM, As I think back 5 hours ago, Watching grown folks indulge in the idea of marriage. Such a beautiful thing when its true essence is given, However the case, The reverse isn't the same.
I felt like a bird on a mountain top, Looking down with a vision of that of an eagle trying to see what I can get from it. I listened as they rambled about adult jokes.
A soothsayer wasn't needed as the drift in class could be told. The song on the radio is sung along by a wife, With lyrics that seem to shred fragments of the heart. A beautiful voice but with emotion and pain littered around it. The rest said their good nights to their spouse over the phone.
Standing over on my balcony as the clock is 17 minutes away from hitting 1AM, Lonely as hell, But somehow I find confidence and comfort when I seldom let my thoughts run loose, Days when they are controlled, I seem to run low on the double C. My heart seems like an uncaged beast, But my soul is angelic. I hate when this shit happens.
