A POEM TO THE SUPER MUM
Super mums are springing everywhere.
From Lagos to Lafia, Calabar to Kano.
Breaking barriers, setting paces,
Winning in challenging environments,
Building careers in tough terrains,
Even where men dread.
Shared by home, career and passion,
And every other thing that comes in-between
Aspirational, but holding strong to family values
Her price is far above rubies.
And incredible are the values she brings to the table
She wakes up early to prepare the family for the day
Nurturing them to stronger body and sharper minds
With a healthy breakfast of Peak Milk
With that, she embraces the day
Facing the future without fear
She is strong, energetic, and willing
She works hard, making sure her dealings are profitable;
Her words are full of wisdom
She has a burning desire to be the best
To grow in body and the mind
She embraces the fitfam to keep in shape
Abreast of trends and pop-cultures
Information on her finger tips
Makes important decisions for her organization
Yet the burden of the family rests on her
She lays on her bed at night
Reflecting on how the day ran,
And how to run the next day
She falls deeply asleep
But as the guardian angel of the family
Her spirit never sleeps, it hovers on the family.
The Holy Book calls her virtuous woman
We call her Champion Mum.
