Wonderous, captivating, divinely delicious.
The double X chromosome is the beauty of the world.
The matriarchal mother of civilization.
Goddess, Queen, Empress, Lioness, Mother, Muva, Grand Dame
whichever linguistic moniker satisfies your fancy,
We honor the tribe she come from and calls forth.
What makes her and what defines her, is her story.
The good, the bad, the ugly, the mess, the stress,
the love, the hate, its all there,
uniquely feminine, unapologetically so.....
Expressed through pain and pleasure.
Outwardly and inwardly
We gather up our loins
in the midst of struggle and strife
we confidently eat our scars for breakfast
Devouring our imperfections for dinner
regurgitating something beyond majestic and beautiful.
Prowess is unmatched,
power beset with grace.
We rise, we fall. We shine, we dull.
Illuminating excellence, moving in divine light
Spreading love like droplets of Frankincense
our Feminine essence rises like Nigrecense
Elevation to make royals out of peasants
Giving third worlds blessed Nations
Maya, Lena, Rosa, Harriet, Ida,
Dorothy, Coretta, Betty, Nina, Phyllis,
Fashioned in the image of the Most High
