An African woman
Born black but beautiful she is. A virtuous woman with her purse in hand her, flowy black hair as she stands tall ready for another day. An African queen from whom many have been groomed. From her sweet yet convictive blossom, she instills her values in the seeds to bloom for Africa. By five o'clock in the morning she arises with a broom in hand gladly and happily beatifying her surroundings. Does she have a minute to sigh? for her time is expensive. It's as valuable as every drop of life-giving water. With all the load-shedding and water shortages around her, she cooks up an ingenious plan to squeeze in firewood fetching and water filling.

Yes, that's an African woman as defined in the primordial ages. Yet the African woman in all her feminism has grown with the modernization era. Yes go to the computer literate careers, you'll find her there leading with all her beauty and brains speaking up high for her. She wakes at a young age with her books in her mind toiling day and night to be that teacher, scientist, and any other of her choices. That feminist has grown past tradition yet her etiquette morals and values define her well. She decided to stand for herself and use every one of her nails to claw herself up to the top. She has broken past stereotypes and clearly yet definitely defines her whole being in what she believes for herself and for those around her.
She carries the pride of her communities on her head and her crown of virtue adds more to her value. Now she is owning a mansion and a trending car. She also has degrees, masters, and doctorates. Yes, she was underestimated but because she plucked some courage to speak for herself,there she is, standing and doing my deeds. Many are flabbergasted of her deeds because they didn't believe she could do it.
An African woman deserves all the respect, love and honor for a woman. Hence with this, I say no to gender-based violence, physical, emotional and spiritual abuse is not the potions of a true proud African woman. Let us keep her dignity and pride. Let us bring her on high not lower her down to the gullies, let us bring her closer to her desires than leave her broken and unwanted. We call for justice for the African woman. Your beauty will not waste away with the times but will brim and shine Africa out of oblivion.
Let's all strive in keeping her as a priceless jewel to the family and a precious mineral to the family. Ally her by uplifting not underestimating her. She runs the world we live in. If she is not there, who can give birth to the boy child! All she needs is respect,love, and care, not stigmatization. A big shout out to every guy out there treating women as queens.
