An ode to women
By Naquelle Chikamba, 22, Gauteng
Recently, I asked God why was I a woman?
Society makes it feel like a curse so why am I a woman?
All I know is only I and those who fall under the description of a woman,
Have the greatest strength,
Love the most,
Bring life into this world,
Handle the monthly painful bleeding with grace,
Beautiful in all different forms. Inside and Out,
Lead homes and countries,
Speak with wisdom,
Laugh the loudest,
And cry the most.
Being a woman is not easy and that’s why the role is only given to those who have the strength to carry the title. Society fails to recognise this blessing, however, society does not make it any less of a blessing.
Happy Women’s day. May you remember the blessing of the role you perform daily.
