A Black Woman - Poem by Violet Macharia

She is beauty
she is grace
she is sexy
she is strength
she is elegance
she is all natural

She is motherhood
she is sisterhood
she is love
given from the one above

It´s in her stride
so full of pride
it´s the curl of her lips
it´s the sway of her hips
it´s in her chocolate thighs
it´s in her big brown eyes

She is perfection
no need for alteration

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem during a time when I was very depressed. I wrote these words to lift my spirit, and every time I looked at it I felt empowered.
I hope to make someone else feel good about themselves when they read this poem.
