WOMAN OF LETTERS

Written by Manu Tende

 

I would like through my poetry!
To pay homage to a beautiful being!
Pay homage to a woman of letters!
This woman’s name is Brenda Mohammed!

*

Let me honor this woman!
Who by poetry saves lives!
Let me honor this woman!
Who has the words that cure ailments!

*

Let me honor this woman!
Who is the voice of the voiceless!
Let me honor this woman!
Who by poetry predicts the future!

*

Let me honor this woman!
Who through poetry tells the past!
Let me honor this woman!
Who by poetry makes us travel!

*

In time and in space!
Let me honor this woman!
Who inspires poets in the shadows!
Let me honor this woman!

*

Who deserves a Nobel Prize for Literature!
Because she made poetry
A remedy for some!
And therapy for others!
It has allowed poetry to cross borders!

*

And to travel the world! Thanks to her collection of poems!
She uses poetry as therapy!
To save human lives!
She uses poetry as a peacemaker!

*

To reconcile couples!
She uses poetry as a language!
To talk to nature!
She uses poetry as justice!

*

To condemn evil!
She uses poetry as a gift!
To do good!
She uses poetry as a gospel!

*

To win souls!
She uses poetry as a weapon!
To warn the infamous! She uses poetry like a flame!
To rekindle souls!
She uses poetry like a song!

*

To wake up those who sleep!
She uses poetry as fiction!
To give voice to the abstract!
She uses poetry as a link!

*

To bring together the poets of the world!
She uses poetry as an experience!
To tell us about her!
She uses poetry as a prophecy!

*

To predict the future!
She uses poetry as a passion!
To teach others the rules!
She uses poetry as a refuge!

*

To relieve the afflicted!
She uses poetry like a wind!
Who blows where it wants!
She uses poetry like an umbrella!

*

To protect women from the rain of violence!
Her poetry rhymes with emotion!
And when you read her poems you become a fan!
This is why I find real pleasure!

*

To read her poems as they inspire me!
Her works will remain forever
Engraved in our memories!
Because poetry has made her immortal.

Congratulations Brenda Mohammed.
