African woman

Being bold, brave and beautiful are attributes exclusive to purpose-driven ladies. With their sphere of influence, directly or indirectly we all benefit from the brightness of their ascent in spite of their seemingly weak nature. Linda Ikeji, Grace Anuforo, Queen Yetunde, Late Dora Akunyili, Joke Silva, Cecilia Ibru, Chinelo Nkennor, Abena Agyeman-Fisher, Omotala Jalade, Stephanie Linus, Ngozi Okonjo, Obiageli Ezekwesili, Victoria Orenze, Folorunso Alakija, among many others — every word of this poem was directly inspired by you…

And suddenly I feel a chill down my spine…
As I behold you so awesome and divine…
Finely sculpted from a precious stone, matchlessly gorgeous…
Drenched in pureness of heart, delightful and courageous… 
Her charm is priceless, a princess who is limitless and relentless…
At her best, she’s the brightest; incomparable, she leaves me breathless…
Her version is originally designed with a software that keeps getting upgraded…
With a vision that tells volume of what’s inside, she’s highly celebrated…
She speaks with an intent to heal and inspire…
Effectively working with content, no plan to retire…
She’s like the stars, she glows continuously toward a clear direction…
Her goals are accompanied by simultaneous actions with precise expression…
Negligible weaknesses as they are covered up by her strength…
Which is internally motivated by experiences and all she has learnt…
Not necessarily a black belt fighter or heavy weight lifter…
But she melts rocks by her tears and scales hurdles by her laughter…
Not perfect but continually striving for a better future…
She learns from her past and cherishes all special moments she can capture…
With her selfie stick, she preserves memories of her loved ones…
With her make-up kits, she sees beyond her scars and burns…
On her heels she feels and knows she’s highly esteemed so she doesn’t fumble…
Her loafers reminds her of her feminism and humanity so she stays humble…
She listens and learns, from her sweat she earns…
Committed to her family and loyal to friends…
She’s that girl, drenched in the spirit of a virtuous woman…
Completely she has won my heart and from a distance I’ve become her fan.
