For walking on my own, God given land.
There for today I say thank you to the brave souls who gave their lives for my freedom and that of my children. So that I, their future, could walk untethered in the country of my birth.
I love old back and white pictures too so I just had to share a few of these elders and ancestors of my now free country. I hope you enjoy today's poems, not political in anyway as you might expect but I just fell inlove with them nonetheless as they celebrate all women. Because even though the challenges we deal with daily an are not to the scale of this event, they would be insurmountable had it not been for the gifts contained, exclusively, within THE WOMAN.
