Poem By yvonne selase nyahe

she labors
day and night without break
fighting for the right to live
red swollen eyes and a broken back
charred fingers, stiff and lifeless
she stands
rain or shine
to protect her children, to please her man
hides her pain, her suffering
she lives
with zeal and undying strength
welcoming each day with hope
with elegance and pride
she is for every woman
she is
truly African

First Love

i came back here tonight
to remember you, my first love
the trees are still the same,
the flowers smell like they did when we were younger

Because Of You

because of you
i have regained my strength
my pride, my self esteem
because of you

Every Man

life is a mystery that sits unraveled
leaving men with questions of how and why
making us hopeless and failures
as we wonder in confusion

The Love Letter

my love, my heart
it took a lot of courage
to write you this letter
my tears can no longer fall


i cant believe it
no it seems impossible
you whom i gave my heart to
i entrusted my life into your hands
