I am not an outcome by my status as a woman,
Neither am I of consequence by being a wife and a mother.
I am confident to hold my own,
Juggling my responsibilities perfectly abreast my dreams.
I am a product of my youth.
I am a product of my dreams.
I am a product of my potential and passion.
I am not limited by the decisions I have made.
I am made of the toughness of the African woman.
Working endlessly, tirelessly, achieving more every day.
I am intelligent, creative, smart and witty
Yet I am stern and discerning of the right
I am more than what you see
I am more than this skin
I am more than my face
I am more than my breasts
I am more than my skirt
I am more because I am made of more
