The Grenadain Woman


Yes me woman, from my womb life was borne

Yes me woman, the young ones prune by my hands

Yes me woman, with the coves that sways with the redeem of the heart beat, tup-tup, tup-tup, tup-tup, tup-tup

Yes me woman, with beauty unimaginable, soft to the touch

yes me woman, with the voice of a heavenly being, soft, gentle, comforting, encouraging

Yes me woman, determine to succeed with the strength from above

Yes me woman, the days have gone, long gone for her to depend on the strength of another man

Yes me woman, her time has come for the world to see her for who she really is

Yes me woman, creative, innovative, confident, intelligent, loving, kindhearted

Yes me woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, lover

Yes me woman, The Grenadian woman.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired due to the struggles I went through personally as a Grenadian Woman, it was written one night while I was writing my articles for publication in one of the local news papers. I was looking at a television program at the same time and there was the show on concerning poets and I was in-tread. Due to my interest in the group I was surfing online for them and came across Poem Hunters.

Thank you Poem Hunters for the avenue to showcase my poem.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
