Wear it like perfume!

celebrating womanhood

Every Wednesday I try to write something about Womanhood. Whether it’s a poem, prose, story anything to celebrate all the women in the world. It is also an opportunity for me to understand the dynamism of the Female gender, who she is and why she is what she is.

As I studied and search for what the focus should be  for this week, I thought about ‘Perfume’.  That’s one of a girl’s best friend if you ask me.  Every woman whether four or forty as a special affinity for perfumes.

A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting- Christian Dior.

That is so profound coming from Christian Dior, best known as the founder of one of the world’s top fashion houses, which is named after Him. Indeed, you can tell something about a woman from the fragrance of her perfume.

For someone like me, I wear different types of fragrance to suit my mood. Sometimes I wear Versace bright crystal, and at other times, I wear something else.

But much more than perfume, there is a virtue embedded in all the female gender that I believe should be well nurtured and allowed to flow freely- Our Gracefulness!


Gracefulness is every woman’s endowment

It goes beyond beauty

It has nothing to do with make-up

It is a combination of the inner strength,

beauty and tenderness bestowed by the Father

On this species called “Her”.

The double dose of her movement,

And the  pureness of heart.

The simplicity of her being

with or without the ornaments

That pleasantness that oozes out

From the woman effortlessly

Lost somewhere along the line

Because of the many voices

Saying she can’t

But now is the time for the woman in you

And the woman in me to take back that Gracefulness

And wear it with boldness

Wear it vivaciously

Wear it so that its fragrance of life and warmth

Will permeate the world

It time to wear it like ..Perfume!

    Lovely poetry. I also have different perfumes for different moods, although I usually end up having a couple favourites I wear more often.
