Poet Bio

Her suffering didn’t begin at birth
Conception led to a world now forfeited
Continuous, unbearable pain that would be bared for life
Swimmingly stroking through poisonous toxics
Strength and strife reviving the revolutionary that is her
In grief and mourning, a relentless empathic fighter;
The healer and comforter thrived
Through own unconditional support and
Unquestionable spoken silence much was met.

Even the Genesis notifies us,
She was made to lead and educate, love and nurture
She is a bearer of the nation – warriors, man of stature and pride
All that is today good has come through her –
Her devotion, motivation, demonstration of what is moral and good
Mediator, inspirer – instiller of values, truth and human kindness

In dark times she has held her head high
Cried buckets full despite bloodlines to no one’s visibility
Ensured a soul so intact in her fighting spirit
And naturally, victory was achieved.

Women, black women, strong women, all women
From knitting and crocheting to high domestication then
Ma’am oh so true to the community
From mother, friend, lover, sister to head of the nation, a great astute leader now
Ma’am oh so true to the continent – Africa
Is a powerful force in the many trials and tribulations of the day
(Brought by new complex troubles of today)
For phenomenal, she is.
