5 Women Writers I adore…
The strength of a woman is her kindhearted ways
that she forever displays.
It’s her loving confident smile that takes you to the
highest place with the glimpse of determination
shone upon her face.
The strength of a woman is the amazing ability to
withstand pain bring life into this world even if
the man does not want to entertain.
It’s the ability to raise her child on her own when
the man left her all alone to support them until
they are grown.
The strength of a woman is the intrinsic style
to protect like a child without being hostile.
It’s the humble heart she shows
that warms a soul when your spirits feeling low.
The strength of a woman knows how to restrain her
tongue when insults are being flung.
It’s the lovely expression she conveys with the eyes
and respect for herself…she does not denies.
The strength of a woman is the devoted traits
she has standing by her man side when problems
It’s her inspirational words she gives her mate
making him feel oh so great.
The strength of a woman is her gentle touch
you love so much.
It’s her loyal love to one guy she continues to create
without being irate.
The strength of a woman is her intellectual mind,
oh so chic with the words she speaks.
It’s the versatile
qualities she uses without spirit of guile.
The strength of a woman is learning how to love
when she has been hurt over again without
committing a sin.
The strength of a woman is not her traditional love
she has to live on, it’s her unconditional spiritual love
that has not yet gone.

I am so proud to be a woman and I love how women are empowered to do more and to be more these days. This is one of the many reasons why I love this era, however, I know we can all do more in empowering our young woman. God has created this world for us to explore as well as we can without any form of limitations.
God bless all the women all over the world.
We are beautiful. We are strong. We are all that God says we are.
We are all King Women.

4| Chidera (The Slumflower)
The Slumflower is actually a name which was directly inspired by Street Etiquette’s ‘Slumflower’ project, centred around the idea of a rose growing from concrete. Growing up in Peckham, South-East London, Chidera shares so many similarities with this concept of beautifully growing, glowing and flourishing in an environment that mainly appears to promote the opposite, especially being a predominantly black neighbourhood which is currently undergoing heavy gentrification.

5| Zadie Smith
Novelist Zadie Smith was born in North London in 1975 to an English father and a Jamaican mother. She read English at Cambridge, graduating in 1997.
