The other day I visited home, and being me every time I go home to visit my family I always carry some of my old stuff that I didn’t think I needed then. I don’t know why especially when it comes to outfits you have long forgotten, probably coz you got bored with it, You stumbled on it sometime later and ask yourself why you shoved it to the side. Anyway it never takes long before you realize why.

So there I was juggling on things and I come across a book I had written few stuff on. As I scan through I come across this article had written about “Woman”. Although a bit cliche I thought I should share it here. And of course I  carried the book along with other things and outfits I probably wont need after a week or two.

Anyway here is the piece in the exact same words I wrote I don’t know how long ago.

Doesn’t matter what we are labeled. Gold diggers, bitches, the weaker sex, feminists, desperados, fact remains that a woman is the most beautiful being God created. A woman smiles in the day and cries at night. Her pillow can well attest to that.

A woman walks away from an abusive marriage with 5 kids and with no idea where she is going or what awaits them on the other side. A woman walks away from someone she loves deeply and truly,with a heavy heart and knowing what kind of heartbreak awaits her coz she knows she deserves better. she deserves love and respect.

A woman is the kind of being that will look so damn strong but deep inside feels so weak like she might break down with every second that passes.

A woman falls a thousand times. Due to failures in relationships, friendships, business, in relation to making bad choices and numerous mistakes and yet picks herself up. Love again, try again, do again and again and again as if its the first time.

Its hard to judge a woman. “sometimes the prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets, the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain”.

A woman is not perfect in any way shape or form. She stumbles, she falls, she gets hurt. but she keeps learning keeps growing.

A woman gives not because she has so much to give but because she is compassionate. A woman has known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, known lack, known heartbreak, known rejection, betrayal, pain and abuse but has somehow found her way out of depths.

Expected to be all around, a woman is the only being who manages to say “I am okay with tears in her eyes”

A woman endures all and still walks with her head held high. Physically awesome and emotions  in check.

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.” Clare Boothe Luce

  1. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more about this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but
    typically folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next!
    Best wishes!!
