In Memory of Motherhood

Pain scribbled signatures in mothers buttocks
announcing the beginning of sunset
sun rays remained un vomited from the beauty of rainbows
war tied ropes of struggle round their necks
many rhymes of suffering sung and unheard
in congregations marching townships and mountains
in search of freedom seeds
seeds of their wombs yearned for freedom far to be harvested
motherhood a definition of honesty hearts
with breasts carrying scars ,laughter ,smiles, and hope
those dimples signatures of resilience
thighs with graffiti of bullet bruises
valleys of their backs smell blood of sons,
sons long buried in the barrel of violence
life stolen in its greenness
motherhood her hands trust red clay soil , even
during cloudless seasons
the womb that breathe rays of this dawn ,today
scribbling this memory on the walls of the rainbow
Shoulders of motherhood carried journeys and hope
how many times hope die ,rise and ripe
erase propaganda from her shoulders
delete the baggage of slogan from from breasts
abort the luggage of war from her womb
bring pastures that she reap fruits of freedom
motherhood how many times you cough sorrow
how many seasons you sneeze hunger
you have eaten enough poverty
and licked the rough hand of war long unforgotten
motherhood freedom is now.

Women of today were girls in the pre -independence Africa . During these times women were abused left ,right and centre by political morons. They were sexual molested by sexual kleptocrats would believed in satisfying their foolish ,egoistic romantic ego.These women lost the sense of love ,trust , hope and optimism. I believe girls of today can transform and effect change now by saying no to rape , to political violnce and propganda abuse.That can be done through media , digital communications and creative writing . Rise girls and free yourself from chains of chauvinistic treachery.

Your Words..

Mbizo,
Your words are so extremely powerful, so vivid, so filled with both sorrow and hope. The beauty that you paint with every line of your poem makes me think that the girls in your project are very fortunate to have a leader like you. Keep up the excellent work!
