A real Woman
By Inet Morudu, South Africa:
A real woman is not her heels.
A real woman is not her strong perfume.
A real woman is not her voluptuous curves.
A real woman… Do you know a real woman though?
Women like Thabitha and Hannah.
I saw real women.
Women with the stature of Goliath
And the power equivalent to that of David.
Women who only know the way forward
and take no heed to the past.
I have met real women.
Real women hold back on the gossip,
Belittling and hatred.
Real women give out fresh love every day.
I heard real women who were
burdened with 90kg's of worldly problems
still saying bless the Lord oh my soul and all that is within me.
Real women… They are parents.
Real women, are faithful.
Real women, are builders.
Real women are nurturers.
Real women will be remembered
by their good deeds.
