AFRO WOMAN!!! She rules supreme in all climes Elegant as the stallion she is in her prime Resilience chariots her purpose to fame A rugged activist, with a cause As a mother, she needs applause Afro woman, has come a long way Give a chance; she will make your day The black woman, She has and flaunts her root Our civilization, she marked her foot A continuous custodian, Our culture to an endless generation An unending legacy your works show History becomes famished, excluding you Your bowels of love, house many great warrior Even your breast, Nourished the very weakest of us Our great continent like others, Your love built. Modernism, challenge your virtue Yes! A true test to size her stature A colossal pageant, she dominate the picture In all fields, she blends with the mixture Her ballooning ambition, Goliath s spear can’t puncture For a prosperous nation, She deserves the credit Global appeal, your fame conjures A real woman, not cheap to capture Being her guest is always a pleasure Inside her lies true treasure Her worth none can measure Afro woman! The real deal in a woman All hail! The African queen! Her whole essence, is never in doubt A great woman, fortress to the weak A woman Moses, standing for all Very audacious, yet gentle like a dove In her veins, runs the blood of greatness A real cover, when all is blown open Yes! The African woman, An empiric icon of woman hood “A beautiful dedication to the BLACK AFRICAN WOMAN” Author: Felix Osaeghemede Joseph Email:;+2348037825027 Written: 22/11/2007; 2pm -7:27pm
