Her Place; Her Voice

Written by Cynthia Mbamalu

Dear woman,

for centuries you were told

to stay in your place.

Better seen but

definitely not to be heard.


“Don’t forget your place woman,

don’t project your voice,

it’s not your right”, they said.


After all, you’re an idea

shaped by society

and society says you

have nothing to say.


You’ve grown

and you’ve fought

to be heard.

You can’t crumble now.


Dear beautiful woman,

you can’t go unheard,


never again.

Spread the love
