OKOROIGBO

WRITE ME DOWN IN HISTORY

BITTER AND TWISTED LIES

TROD ME IN DIRT,

BUT STILL, LIKE DUST, I RISE

DOES MY COLOUR OR PERSON  UPSET YOU?
DOES IT COME AS A SURPRISE
THAT I DANCE AND MOVE FREELY?

OUT OF THE HUTS OF HISTORY’S SHAME                                          
I RISE
UP FROM A PAST THAT’S ROOTED IN PAIN
I RISE
I’M A BLACK OCEAN, LEAPING AND WIDE,
WELLING AND SWELLING I BEAR IN THE TIDE

ON THIS OTHER SIDE

I know her from my little city. Naturally smart and intelligent. But she is relegated to just cooking and washing the childrens cloth at home. Her place they say is in the kitchen. She dare not talk when men are talking.

SOCIETAL DOCTRINE on gender inequality in our present society has led to so many women been seen as lower beings as oppesed to men.

 

However, the approach is not supporting the quote which says “ WHAT A MAN CAN DO, A WOMAN CAN DO BETTER” Women tends to be undermined in major aspects of the societal affair. ( ECONOMY, EDUCATION, HEALTH, POLITICS, FINANCES and SOCIAL ASPECTS)

With this piece ON THIS OTHER SIDE, sporadically eliminates the stigmatization of what women can, should, expected to be. By so doing disvaluing what she is really made up of.
