She toils

She tries

She never gives up until she succeeds

Her family comes first

Her children are her pride and joy

Her man is her pride

God is her strength and rock

She protects her children like a lion protects its cubs

She asks for nothing

Rejoices with little

She is overworked

And undermined

She cries when you cry

Laughs when in pain

Smiles when let down

She is a mother

A daughter

An auntie

A sister

A girlfriend

A lover

A friend

A grandmother

And a great grand mother

She is you

She is me
