Here’s to the girls Queens.

“Many women have done wonderful things,
but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!”

-Proverbs 31:30 (The message translation).

 

Here’s to the girl—
Whose nose was constantly buried in the spine of a book,
the one who didn’t wear make-up to tempt some guy;
but wore it because it made her feel confident.
The one who didn’t ‘take-in’ her school uniform skirt just to get the attention of Wale Olu-Williams;
The one who would wake up each morning to say a prayer for the mean girls who teased her.
The girl who didn’t have a date to prom—
Not because she was not asked,
But because no boy at the time could adequately match the queen she catered for on the inside.

Here’s to the girl—
Who struggled with something,
Her weight, an eating disorder, her appearance—
The one who cried each night because she was called fat, ugly or unlovable
The one who eventually grew to realize she was a queen
The one who learnt queens came in different colors, shapes and sizes
Who would stare in the mirror and smile because she had overcome

Here’s to the girl—
Whose greatest canvas was her body and whose biggest brush was a needle—
The one who wasn’t understood,
They did not understand that her piercings and tattoos were a mere expression of the woman inside of her;
That her wardrobe, though lacking a skirt told the tales of her dependence on no man
Because she was both man and woman for herself
She was a modern day queen—
One ready to rule her kingdom without a king.

Here’s to the independent, young, career woman—
Embracing her feminity daily,
You are so strong—
Working 9 to 5 each day without complaint
Working hard and praying harder
The one who does not depend on some ‘bae, boo or baby’—
To buy her the things that her Father could not
The one holding her own—
Because she knows the men that have come her way would steal her focus from God.
The one acknowledging and enjoying the life she chose for herself.

Here’s to the single mother,
Who would give anything for her child—
The one who does not believe in mistakes,
But call every situation what it is—
A blessing.
Here’s to the stay at home mother,
We acknowledge that raising five kids is more tedious than any 9-5 job out there;
After five pregnancies, three of which were c sections—
You still look like the queen you did 15 years ago
To the strong and beautiful mother
Catering for each of her children’s specific needs

Here’s to the prayerful mother
The one leaving a legacy—
Who wakes at dawn to pray for her household
The one putting the needs of her children above her own
The one who taught her daughter that no man should ever make her ‘get on her knees’
The one who acknowledged that God was the only one to be knelt before
The one teaching her daughter to pray—
The one taking her daughter to Church
Braiding her hair and telling her everything will be alright
The true woman whose goal is to raise a true woman.

Most of all,
Here’s to every woman—
The ones who are and the ones who are trying to be;
A whole generation depends on you so don’t ever feel unimportant
You are so worthy, so strong, so beautiful, so smart
Your kind spirit is your crowning glory which will hold the heart of many kings
There is so much more to you than how you appear
God is on your side,
He’s working on you,
Your story isn’t over—
So don’t settle for mediocre,
He’s making you into a force to be reckoned with
He’s bringing you the right relationships
The ones that will glorify him
Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and chase your dreams
Don’t give up
You’d laugh about it in the end
Here’s to the Queen within you x
