Obafunke Braithwaite – The Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria

Love made you

And you stand before us all

A being with morals, pride and elegance


Show the world what a Nigerian woman is –

a fountain of sacrifice, patience and forgiveness.


Wisdom made you

So you could decide for yourself

Which way you would go


Show the world who a Nigerian woman is –

dry-eyed and brave; she faces each day with renewed vigor


Hope made you

So you could deliver the trampled women

Of our corrupt nation


Show the world why a Nigerian woman was created –

to become a mother to those who need one.


Truth made you

So you could be a voice to those who cannot speak

An ear to those who should be heard


Show the world when you become the Nigerian woman -6

The Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria.

  5. Short but beautifully captured. A piece of prose might say nothing about a writer, but a poet gives his all in his poetry. From your poetry, I sense the brotherly love too. Nice way to put emotions into writing.

    1. Brotherly love??? Lol! I’m a girl!

    2. @Hextophar Still, thank you.
