I occasionally write for a platform at work. And with all the chaos happening around us. It inspired this post. Take a read:
I find it ironic how, in the wake of women’s month, we wake up to news reports headlining the gruesome murders of kids, teens and adults; most of which are female. This blog post is not going to be a feminism escapade or a female rant at that. Instead, it is going to pay tribute to the very many, powerful and influential queens of the world. #queendom.
It is an affirmation for the queens and serves as a reminder to the kings, to appreciate every woman they encounter.
I am queen because I’ve overcome hurts and pain that was meant to break me. I turn pain into power!
I am a queen because God made me and because I know I can only do things with his will and permission and hey, I’m okay with that.
I’m a queen because when I do something, I do it with love and all things positive. I don’t do it based on condition or because I have to. If it’s well within my soul, it’s the purest and most sincere.
I am a queen because I treat people with honesty, love and respect, like the kings and queens that they are; Because what’s the use of identifying somebody as a king or queen but never treating them with the honour that they deserve…
I am a queen because I err. I am flaw-filled but I wear those flaws confidently because we were not born perfect, we were born to work towards being better than who we were yesterday.
I am a queen because I’m a warrior and not a worrier. Nothing can keep me down for too long. Call me my own knight in shining armour! I soldier on proudly in the constant wars that happen between the self and I, and those that continue around me. Forget justice, I am in the league of and
I am a queen because I choose to celebrate the best in people and not compete. You can never compare me to you. Our struggles are different and therefore our battles are different.
I am a queen because I fight for what’s right, irrespective of race, colour or creed so best believe, if you are coming for me, you better come correct.
I am a queen because I love to learn. I try different things to widen my perspective and self-growth and mastery is what I’m after.
And hell, I am a queen because I brush my hair some days and others I don’t, I listen to rap music one day and then jazz the next. I rock purple orange and green on some days and black and grey on others.
Point is, I’m a queen in my own right and my soul is royalty! Rest assured, you and yours are too.
Love, light and supreme delight: from just an ordinary queen!
