I Am A Woman - Poem by Rev Vusi Khoza
From a near distant you looked at me, then you smile at me, oh what a smile. I didn’t respond, I pretended I didn’t care. Then you winkled your eye then I smile. In my own conviction I asked myself, what could have ran through your mind when you looked at me?
You call me and then you requested my name, where do I stay and you also asked for my contacts. With a smile I gave them to you.
Could it be because I’m the reflection of your mother? Could it be because you think I could brighten life and make you a man? Could it be because you think I can be the only thing you see in your jungle?
I wonder! Could it be because I provoke memories of your ex, could it be because you think you can easily show the world how powerful you can be or how ruthless you can be. Maybe you have finally found someone you can beat up with no remorse for your ex’s wrong doing. Or could it be because you found someone you can call a witch, a bitch and useless. Who do you see in me?
Or could it be because you have finally found a piece of a puzzle missing in your life, or could it be that you have finally come to realize that your life is worth nothing without a woman that can represent a figure of your mother in your life. Or could it be because you finally realized you have a heart? I just want you to know, I AM A WOMAN
In a true sense could it be because you loved my smile, could it be because my smile resonates and revive the man in you. Or I provoke the inner you? remember, I am a woman.
You called me my baby, and then I called you my love. Yes I am a woman, man you are my baby. With my breast I will feed you, with my smile I will dry your tears, with my heart I will love and care for you. If only you mean what you say. I have a place for you in my heart. And yes I am a woman.
Be still do not move and be sure not to be threatened look at me and smile again. Close your eyes and listen to my heart.
Yes I love you too and true I am a woman.
