THE WORLD BEGINS WITH YOU

THE WORLD BEGINS WITH YOU --for Every Woman by Ajeyemi Wasiu The world begins with your womb that houses me. The world begins with your love that swaddles me, Woman. The world begins with your laughter that engulfs everywhere. The world begins with your face where the spell of light lives; where the charm of love dwells. The world begins with your heart - the lone temple where we gather to worship. The world begins with your hands full of dews. Your arms waiting to embrace my tender body. The world begins with your voice that stirs our ears to the wind of your songs. The world begins with your teeth that surpass the whiteness of snow. The world begins with you, Woman. The world lives when you love. The world dies in your absence. The world begins and ends with you, Woman.
