Our Diversity Our Dignity

Don’t think too low or too high of yourself.
Be confident but not arrogant,
Be humble but not ignorant.
Adore others but don’t be a sycophant.
Don’t force a fish to fly,
Don’t spur the sparrows to swim.
Don’t compare an ant to an Elephant.
No one is better than you.
No one is inferior to you.
No one is White and no one is Black.
I mix my coffee with milk,
not because of their colours
but the uniqueness of their flavours.
Use a white marker on a whiteboard
and a black pen on a blackboard,
see the essence of diversity and inclusion.
We are more than tags and labels.
We all are exquisite expressions of God.
You are not the colour of your skin,
You are the graces you carry within.
Your value is measured by how you value others.
True wealth is not about affluence but influence.
We are all sacred and significant.
Different flavours, different colours,
There is dignity in diversity.

Every Woman is a Wonder

Every woman is a vibrant vessel.
A marvel the human mind cannot unravel.
Her heart is holy ground,
a world of warmth and worship,
and her body: a battleground
where bleeding is a blessing in disguise.
I’m in awe of all the pains and the storms
that a woman’s body can endure.
From period cramps to the pressure of pregnancy,
and the untold pains of childbirth.
Only a dead man will dare to assault this delicate dimension of divinity.
She is a tapestry of tenacity,
a symbol of strength and sweetness.
Her womb is an enigmatic empire
where nations and generations are nurtured
till they are fit to survive on planet earth.
Her breasts are a fountain of life,
the peaks of passion and nourishment.
She is everything a man is not,
and most times, she is everything a man has got.
Every woman is a wonder to behold,
a treasure that cannot be bought or sold.

Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women in my life. I love you all.
