THIS WOMAN I AM WRITTEN BY NJIDEKA IKERIONWU This woman I am Stops me at’imes It crooks my cruises And storms my sails Cuts my journeys short And cows my instincts Shrinks my time at library It edits my vocabularies Most times It dumbs my mouth And numbs my nerves Subdues actions inside me Just to evade that question That shy’s and freezes my actions Don’t you know you are woman? Yet I want to come and come back again As the woman I am Being under Savouring the joys of womanhood Always happening inside me The sweetness of receiving ends Enjoying the sucks of my babies Cite me right in this verse A bit shy now This woman I am
