I am a woman

And I’ll stay a woman

I won’t be a foe to another woman

I won’t be a tool to hurt another woman

A man is a man but a woman is my own


I am a woman

With everything woman

I’ll stand tall and work to be a stronger woman

I’ll never see men as job opportunities

Pride is a beauty I’ll always aim to achieve


I am a woman

And will never covet another woman

All hooked men I’ll forever see as expired species

Because the tears of a woman I deem a curse

I’ll work to portray the beauty of  women


I am a woman

And will never abuse a child

Child abuse makes me a farmer killing my produce

All species must be treated fair and square

Because I am that woman who makes the world


I am a woman

And will not stand to be called a thing

Marriage is golden but will never be a bondage

To force my mind and make me a sinner

Or claim my heart and make me bitter


I am a woman

And I’ll forever stand as a woman

A word against a woman will be a word against me

I’ll look out for all women in all spheres

And help with crisis no matter how hard


I am a woman

And will never act like a chameleon

As I am, so will my image in the mirror be

Because I am a woman

And must always stand tall


I am a woman

Which makes me no boxer

I’ll never pick a fight I can never finish

An abusive man will forever be banished from my heart like a slave

His words will never find a path into my ears


I am a woman

Who worry flees from

No matter its nature

It will bounce back into its hole

So never will I cower when trouble stares



I am a woman

Sensual, beautiful,

Brainy and compassionate

No matter what anyone says,

I am a woman who is a woman and will forever stand tall as a woman

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)


It was very good. The weather was warm and dry and there was a gentle breeze throughout the day. Although there were a lot of people there, there wasn’t anyone who was being disruptive. Dogs were catching balls while the music played. It was overall a wonderful day. 🙂


I apologize for being insensitive. It was not my intention. Not being close to nature isn’t fun for me. I work in technology and you can’t get further away from the natural order of things. Some day, I hope to live, at least part of the year, in Costa Rica. That is my dream – to be close to the rain forest.


Lol, Rob, I’m not offended at all, I’m actually laughing at myself. You see, I am in Ghana. There are many things to see in Ghana and Africa for that matter, but people do not have the touring and vacation spirit. It is the way we were brought up. Always working for goals we never seem to achieve. I must say you are living and may your dream come true.

I’d love to visit Africa one day. I’ve always been fascinated by the Rift Valley, especially Lake Tanganyika. Maybe someday I’ll be able to visit. I’m glad that I haven’t offended you! 🙂


I know that this post is for women, but I find the words to be powerful and proud. Beautiful photo, Cecelia. ❤ Thank you for sharing both.
