    We deny culture again and again
    but it’s voice is very loud and it hides the sins of many
    So many may attempt to live renewed lives with renewed lives
    but so many times they hide once again beneath the skirts of culture
    because it permits man’s inhumanity to man

    Sweetie I hear your truth
    but I choose to break the limits and live my best live God willing
    and God making a way too.

    Power-FULL. This is not a feminist poem. That needs to become a hashtag and this video needs to go vital. Especially amongst countries that can relate well to these issues. We must never tire from affirming at every turn, at any given opportunity and especially at teachable moments that happen to us women folk almost every day that We R InDEED HUMAN WITHOUT and exclusive of our relationship with men.

    This is so brilliant, so articulate and captures the struggles of womanhood against oppressive cultures without sound human foundation.
