she never ceases to inspire me
this young woman harbouring big ideas
her intelligence, her guts and wits
that speak of a ‘female’ spirit

you can never be more wrong than think
its because of her tinted long locks
or her black framed glasses
both of which i have that i like her

i do not see myself in her
i do not see you in her
but it is the her in her that i see
the definition of real brains

i do not wish i were you sweetheart
a prof, a poet, a storyteller, an achiever
and all you are but i wanna be me feeling like you do
pumla gqola…oh the loudrastress… you rock girlfriend
