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!
