Poem: She-god

Victhur Ihuka January 05, 2016

African woman

She is powerful 
Don’t you see it?
Are you blind to the tenacity of her determination?
What do you see when you look at her?

Don’t you feel her vibrant energy vibrate to the galaxies beyond?
Don’t you feel the perfect tapestry of the master in her?
Don’t you feel her soul begging for release when you take her to the edge?
Are you blind to her curves and her edges screaming to be heard?

She is a she-god 
And even though she doesn’t realize this 
Even though she lingers on the threshold of mediocrity 
Even though she doesn’t know which path she’d choose 
Even though she wreaks of scars and welts and bruises of battles fought- some won, some lost 

Yet in due time, she’ll rise 
Like a phoenix from the fire 
High above all that has kept her down 
And the world will indeed know 
That where there is a will in her heart 

Her will will always make a way‎
