Womanhood - Poem by Blessing Ekpe
Today girl is tomorrow mother/wife
The clapping sound of bare feet, soon replaced by the sound of sharp heels and strong gaits.
Daddy sweetest pie will soon be some one's sweetheart...lol
She makes the steps that lead to womanhood one day at a time
She will not escape challenge, she must be a fighter...
The uncertainty of tomorrow causes men to seek GOD who can see...
Where men frail eyes are too weak to venture
Who can see tomorrow but the one who hold's in his hand?
Just a blink of my eyes, and you have gone from pampers to puberty.
I turn my head to hide a tear and look again.....
YOU have gone into the arms of 'WOMANHOOD'
she is no longer my baby girl but some one's else's baby...
she will no longer sit on daddy lap but some one else's
she will no longer sleep on daddy chest but someone else's
she will no longer be daddy pet for she now has a new OWNER
