Daughter of Eve

by Vickie M. Oliver-Lawson

 

I am the daughter of Eve

Walking along the Motherland's Nile

With my head held high for all to see and admire

My beautiful queenliness.

 

I am the daughter of Eve

The mother of all living

With my rich earth-toned skin

Emulated by others, but unique in its own way.

 

I am the daughter of Eve

So fruitful

As evident by suckling babes

I'm raising warriors

To walk their future in my own footsteps.

 

I am the daughter of Eve

Walking beside my mate

In a wifely state

And essential to the existence of all.

 

I am the daughter of Eve

Leaving my legacy of life

For those who will come behind

And carry on my strength and beauty.

 

I am the daughter of Eve

Giving life to others

As they remember my inner strength

The core of my being

 

I am the daughter of Eve

Walking in my mother's footsteps

Guiding and assisting posterity

As we follow the ways of the Creator.

I am the daughter of Eve

Standing on my mother's shoulders

Exuding strength and leaving my mark

For all to see and know That I existed.
