The Ascension Woman
Her ancestors are present, guiding her intuitively.
From the highlands, deserts,
grass plains to the rainforest,
her essence is imprinted in these landscapes.
When you look at me, you see her.
When I look at her, I see you.
Skin tones blended with delicate
hues of sienna, ochre, henna and kohl.
Her presence beckons
“See me. Hear me. Know me”
Her scars reveal her past; lessons learned.
She takes flight; rising to the occasion.
Her voice shapes nations;
she breathes life into new beginnings.
Ascension; the emancipation of self.
She is the Ascension Woman.
