Sophisticated Woman


Sophisticated they say; whatever that is

Is it in the height of her hills?

…or the style of her steps

The trend in her choice of fashion,

Or the elegance in her dressing

Sophisticated woman! They whisper as she walks by,

They don’t know,

She gets weary from the all-day custom hills,

Gets choked by the stuffiness of her blazer,

And her freedom hidden in the firmness of her bra

Yet they, kula kwa macho…

Admiring Silently,

Afraid of the smile in her radiance,

The penetrating beauty

And the delicacy of her expression!

Sophistication! The price she pays
