I Salute the Black Sista!!

Dark-skinned, mulatto, caramel

The different shades of her
Tall and slim, short and curvy
The different shapes of her
Elegant and graceful

The presence of her

Sensual and feminine

The scents of her

Nurturing, hardworking and loving

The essence of her

Family and culture the roots of her

Fearless, boldness and pride

The being of her

Sexy, intelligent and damn bootylicious

The beauty of her

Multi-tasking, multi-lingual

The versatility of her

Adaptable to new environments

Coping without family and friends

Getting an education whilst working fulltime

And supporting her immediate & extended family

Still looking flyy on a Sunday after working 6 days

Crying in private whilst being bold in public

Superwoman wishes she was her

For she is the African woman

Proud to be African for that’s the soul of her!!
My last post was a celebration of the brothas, and so I once more throw in this piece for my sistas as it wouldn't be fair for me not to give them a shout out! My girl LondonDiva also did a great tribute to the sistas!
Ooooh after being Kookie, she did an interview of getting to know me..go and read on!! And I have to say she asked if I had my own Jay-Z, and NO,I don't, y'all would know about gurl tell'em!!, as always happy sexing xoxo

Telekinesys said...

Nice poetry.Strong.

Super star! said...

My black woman!

What can I compare her to?
How can I ever describe her?

It’s in the darkness of her skin
The richness of her curves,
The ebullient smile,
The blackness of her hair,
It’s in her round big eyes,
And the shape of her nose
Fervent features, an abundance of Mother Nature.
Those the Gods favour they always give more!

She’s black and beautiful,
The object of my desires,
The missing pierce in my puzzle!

A Captivating mind,
An Infallible character,
She is the eighth wonder of the world,
Indeed at birth many travelled to this see
this blessed creature. A nation has been born they said!

She was brought up by her mother,
Her kind heart did she inherit
Her work ethic she has made her own…
An embodiment of Mother Africa,
The birthplace of mankind,
A bastion for man-hood
Unrivaled Plains, enchanting rivers and deep roots,
Forever cajoled by its mystique and hidden treasures.

A kingdom is strong through her works,
Her Sons and daughters raised in pride
To be kings and queens in lands yonder,

Oh my black woman, never lose your blackness,
Never neglect the words from your mother,
Don’t let go of your dreams!
Indeed stand tall and proclaim your identity
For I will be by your side………..
A strong black man,
Brought up to adore and cherish a black woman!

Itsme! said...

MissLove said...

OluwaDee said...

I also salute the black sista!

mr luvable said...

am still waitin girl, lol u are been lazy ,

Isi said...

am not usually too proud being an 'african woman' - u know, the multi-tasking, i-can-take-any-crap-to-remain-married kind of status alot of women subject themselves to, but this piece actually makes me proud.

happy to be an african woman.

happy new year dear!

Geebee said...

I guess it's fair enough if the sistas get their own share, especially since the brothas had theirs. Strong lyrics and smooth rhythm. Just the perfect poem for the true black sista. My mum's the number one black sista to me!

Oyin said...

First I have to tell you that Im stealing your pic. Second I have to say damn the girl looks like Obama oldest daughter (go back and look at the pic you have on blog). She just looks like the older version.

Ok and lastly......its how we should be seen...just as that as beautiful African American strong black women

Afrobabe said...

Aijay said...

RocNaija said...
