Woman of Africa

Woman of Africa
Joseph Kaifala

African woman
Woman of the north
Woman of the south
Woman of the east and west
Woman of the Makona river
How beautiful you are

I look at you without blinking
Your black braided hair
A beauty I cannot resist
Like an alignment of the stars
Your smooth dark skin
Complements your fierce white eyes

I could stare at you forever
As you do your majestic walk
Feet and hips in rhythm
To the beat of your internal djembe
With the attitude of a goddess
You flirt with my unblinking eyes 

Woman of the fields
Woman of the rivers of Africa
I feel your strength within me
Yours was love at first sight
I inhaled your fragrance
And became man

Woman of Africa
Bearer of the black race
Beautiful is your name
That echoes across a dark continent
Blooming in the hearts of men
Who long to hold you

KATEHUN KATEHUN (pronounced Ka-te-hun)-is a Mende word for a symposium or community center where disputes are settled. Everyone is permitted to make his/her case before a presiding chief in an open forum. On this forum, I write primarily for those who stand committed to the Rule of Law in Africa and to the value that our future is better determined by the government of the people, by the people, and in service for the people. To advance the African value of Ubuntu through International Law and the Principles of a United Nations, which propels us towards Life in Larger Freedom.
