A Christian poem Written By: Nosisa Zamajobe Sithole
She strives to look her best, to do her best and to
Be the best among many virtuous women.
She wants to leave a mark where she’s passed,
A good one, clothed with strength and dignity,
For nine months she carries life within her,
Nourishes it, sings to it, and protects it.
Stones are thrown at her each and every day;
She uses them to build strong foundations.
She has beauty and brains, with her warm heart,
She welcomes you to be part
Of the beautiful journey God has intended for her.
She has you around, she becomes selfless,
She prays, and pleads to God on your behalf
Because she cares, she loves.
She’s not sure what the future holds, but her
Faith encourages you to face another day
She deserves to be loved, protected, and cared for
To be cherished and praised, for she is more precious than rubies
You turn against her, she fears you
You bring sorrow in her life, she looks over her shoulders
Every now and then, she apologizes for your wrong doings, still she warms
Your food and prays that one day you’ll be a better man
She deserves to be respected
LET US PROTECT OUR WOMEN; IT’S THE LEAST THEY DESERVE
