Woman Of Africa

African Woman, speak.
For your voice is sweet,
your clever words are priceless
and your laughter’s deep

Speak, Mama speak,
For you give hope
to hesitant and tired feet.
And your wisdom keeps homes
together, with a love so sweet.

Speak, my sister.
For your words have raised strong men
in times of tears and laughter
your pride has walked great nations
through each day’s struggles

Woman of Africa,
your tears continually cleanse
the pain of hunger and poverty,
sometimes at great expense
to your very being.

PoP 18 January 06

In honour of the African woman, the backbone of Africa.
