I have my poems published in the book called 'Yachitheka Ingqaka' Updates

Call Me A Woman

Rose that grows stronger than a tree
You carry food to the nations
You bring leaders and heroes in this world
Your dignity calms the storms
Call me a woman!

With my hands I mold,
Caring and giving love to the nation
Softness that produce strong soldiers
