Portrait Of A Woman

poemwoman

As if we planned it, we are wearing similar colours in this portrait

In honour of March 8th Woman’s International Day, She Rocks Assignment #2 is dedicated to the WOMAN.

For this powerful assignment I went through my poetry achieve and retrieved a poem I wrote seven years ago {time really flies}.

I polished it a tiny bit to share it with the world. When it was time to put it together I went through my photos and found this one that speaks so much to me. Three generation of women. I titled the poem PORTRAIT OF A WOMAN because for generation woman is the vessel of humankind.

Until I became pregnant I didn’t feel like a real woman, I always felt awkward in my body of woman. During pregnancy I felt the glow and felt like a natural woman. It was also during that period that my mum and I bonded more. I love the complicity that can form among women and I would like to have a good relationship with my daughter and I believe the only way to achieve it is by living the example.

I appreciate my mother every time more and more and it’s all because I feel like a real woman.

I dedicate the words to every WOMAN on this planet and beyond.

  4. Love the picture! I love how you expressed yourself in describing how you felt before and after you got pregnant. Oh to feel the life of a little being inside my womb! I know because you are aware of your upbringing and your daughter's needs, she will be a fabulous woman because of it.

  6. Having a child of your own helps you to see your own mother in a different light. There is no love like a mother's love for her child and your photo is just bursting with love!
