    Absent woman, transparent woman,
    absorbed under the scrutiny of watching eyes,
    trying their bests to categorize
    scheme and demean
    just cause she seems
    a bit too independent….

    Yoruba woman, daughter of the Amazon,
    beauty and wisdom passed down
    since the creation of Eve,
    mother of ancient understanding,
    supreme bearer of life,
    she flourishes like great waters,
    cooling the thirsts of masses,
    she should stand
    a paragon,
    demanding praise from all who
    view her….

    yet she’s raided,
    often times degraded,
    taken for granted
    when I’m simply asking
    for once, fellas,
    can’t we open our eyes
    erase the prejudgments
    and realize
    that she
    is the matriarch of joy in our lives
    can the lady just be…
    loved…
    cherished…
    appreciated…
    pleased…
    happy…
    can’t the lady just be?
