The woman I met yesterday

By: Gladys Nomvuyo Sebeko

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE WOMAN I MET YESTERDAY

She had a smile of a queen and the breath of a princess

Her face was like an ocean with hair like the sunset

Her body so perfect like the clear blue sky

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE WOMAN I MET YESTERDAY

She had strong but gentle hands with a warm touch

With athletic legs covered in olive oil

Her eyes so bright they made the room shine

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE WOMAN I MET YESTERDAY

Her face told a story of a thousand years

And her laugh, shed tears of sorrow

Her arms looked like they could carry a village

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE WOMAN I MET YESTERDAY

Her cheeks where full of pain, her lips were full of fear

Her hands were full of anger, her eyes had no soul

And her legs had no strength

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE WOMAN I MET YESTERDAY

She wanted to talk but was told to listen

She wanted to cry but was told that crying is a sign of weakness

Her legs wanted to run but she was told that a WOMAN must not run away, but fight till the end.

YESTERDAY I MET A MODERN DAY WOMAN.
