Grandma Yaa and Mother Ama

By Akosua Tuntum Nahana
Grandma Yaa and Mother Ama
To Yaa Lady ( Grandma Papabi)
Woman stronger than steel,
Tough as nails,
Teacher,
History,
Living Ancestor,
Pride of me being Ghanaian,
I inherited your sharp tongue,
Wit,
Laugh and smile.
Always giving,
To those who are not fed,
A reservoir of knowledge,
Kindness,
Resilience in believe in Jesus,
I salute you,
My Angel,
Whose wings,
Teach me,
My tradition,
Culture,
Love,
And kindness
Must not escape me.
I love you,
Dreading the day you will leave.
TT
To Ama ( Mummy)
We often disagree,
Yet I know the depths to which you love me,
Without you I wouldn't be the woman I am
Today,
You are my strength,
My stubbornness,
My inability to give up,
To know I will always survive,
To move forward,
Even if the odds are great,
I must succeed,
I have no option.
That you taught me,
I'm forever grateful,
That I must be great.
I am undeniable phenomenal.
