Only Time

​Curves at their position

Waist bigger and better

Breats thrusting out like a serpent ready to strike

Ready to give suckle to little ones

Womb ready to incubate generations

Ready to push and bring forth another cry into the world

      Smiles so broad and wide

Cute and adoring

Melting the strongest of hearts

Cheeks popping out like puff puff

The cute hole on her face

Each time she smiles

Forming the word dimple


     Eyes lit with sparks 

So charming and alluring

Heart warm and kind

Brains up and doing

Many coming to drink from her wells

Wells of knowledge and wisdom

She’s an epitome of beauty

A cynosure of attraction

   Men come pleading at her feet

All to have a taste of her presence

And intellectual power


    Only time would have brought 

Such great changes

To a woman who was once known as girl

Who washed only her tummy

And eased herself of waste products 

Anytime and anywhere

Without the consciousness that 

‘A man is around’

A girl who said ‘my mum said I should cover my thing’

Cried and ran into the arms of anyone who 

Cared to know what was the cause of her pain


      Only time could have given her the apple

Made her realise her nakedness

Strip her of her innocence

And opened her eyes to the struggles of her forefather Adam

    Only time could bring people out their 

Houses to ring the bell in all corners

Proclaiming ‘Mfon mma is plus one today!

pendropspoetry celebrates Mfon as she turns plus 1 today
