Two poems by exciting new poet, Aramide Pearce.

I Am 

I am friendship

I am acceptance

I am unity

I am strength

I am equality

I am love

I am happiness

I am peace

I am confidence

I am independence

I am growth

I am woman

Woman

Woman and beautiful that’s me

The colour of my skin beautiful

You see

Goddess

That’s me

Goodness that’s also me

Woman and proud

Women’s lives matter

As a matter of fact

And that’s the fact of the matter.
