POEM 1
Train up a woman train up the nation
the woman uses her wealth of knowledge
and wisdom to educate the child from cradle, infant and old age.
The first education a woman gives to a child helps to make the child a better adult in the future.
The echoes
of the strong voice of advice of the woman in the child ear,
gives the child achievements in life. Train up a woman train up a nation

POEM 2
woman: beautiful creature of god. mother to all
woman: mother to herself and her friends
woman: mother to her immediate family, nuclear family and friends
woman: mother to her husband and his family
woman: mother to her children and her friends
woman: a true embodiment of her undying love
thank god I’m a woman, for my price is more than money

POEM 3
A pride of womanhood, pride of the nation
glorious creature of god co-creator with god
bringing life into existence, suffers pains of child birth with pride
a home builder a nations builder
let’s remember and give honour to those women who could not
pull through child birth, those baby girls who did not make it at birth
and those women who could not go through life till today
I wonder what our world would be today without a woman
thank god i am a woman for I am beautifully and wonderfully made

POEM 4
Do you know mama
Oh no!
mama is the one that fills the space in my heart
i will take a picture to remember mama
can a picture talk oh no
can a picture love oh no
can a picture cook on no
can a picture pray oh no
can a picture do what mama can do for me?
Oh mama i love you
