She - Poem by Nosipho Africanqueen Mtabani

She is songs & dances
stories & dreams questions & answers theories & practicals.

She is
sorrow & joy
good & bad
grudge & forgiveness.

She is
house & home
razor & bandage
sour & sweet
plain & trimmed.

She is
master & servant
oppression & freedom
unbearable death & fruitful living.

She is
mommy & daddy
sister & girlfriend
religion & tradition.

She is
dandelion & thorn bush
lion & dove

She is endless love
