THE WOMAN


(Dedicated to HER who never minded)

 

This poem
Shall announce I am woman,
Not these curves on my body.

 

This woman
Shall tell I am life,
Not the spare ribs of an idle man.

 

This life
Shall profess we are whole,
For man alone is life handicapped.

  2. This style in this poem distinctly reminds me of Mutabaruka’s ‘Dis Poem’.The themes under consideration are of course very different.One cannot help but admire the poet’s capability of succintly putting ideas across,a skill which even poets of the long,winding poems often fail at.Kudos.
