Call Me A Woman - Poem by Andiswa Mvanyashe

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
Soldier in making fighting for a better life for all
Call me a woman!

Creator of warmth in this cold world
Beautiful rose, you glow in the dessert world
Builder that will never give up
In your milk we drink and live
Sender of an important output to the world
Call me a woman!
