Lady

Watch my strides

See my pouts

It’s not shakara

It’s not gragra

I be lady.

 

Lift what? To weigh my burden.

Wash what? To cleanse your sins.

It’s not gragra

It’s not shakara

I be lady.

 

I beg your forgiveness, indeed

Come again, you will not find the reflection of ancestral sorrows in my waters

Yes

It is gragra

It is shakara.

 

It’s not gragra

It’s not shakara

I be African woman

I be lady.
