Hertha writes poems that helps her readers to analyse situations that are harmful to the society so they can try to help make it a better.
Women are one of God's perfect creations.
They are strong and beautifully sculpted,
They are protective and wise,
They have the power to control but not all of them know this.
However, we becoming one another's enemy.
We fighting one another,
It seems like sisterhood only applies when we happy but never when we are sad and need support.
We humiliating one another over petty things,
Instead of fightfig the real enemy.
She can not be called a woman if you aim at destroying another woman.
She can not be called a woman if all she does is criticize and not compliment.
She can not be called a woman if she encourages chauvanists.
She can not be called a woman if she laugh at the struggles of others.
She who is called a woman guides and inspires,
She who is called a woman aims to build a home that is hopefull and beautiful.
She who is called a woman uplifts and encourages,
She who is called a woman prays and has patience.

Hi Ms David,
I just hope everyone think like you do
But sadly they don't.
Everytime I encounter them I just make my self believe that they are into something so " I have to understand "
Great message! Everyone should read it. Enjoy the rest of the day and God bless :-)

Hi there Lorna, thank you so much for your comment. And I agree with you social media is honestly becoming an unsafe space for many people.
Please take care and be blessed.

This is a powerful poem Hertha and it is a sad day when women cannot stand together and support each other. I feel that online platforms are a vehicle for those people who want to disrespect others. They appear to feed on a cocktail of pain and humiliation. Your last verse really summed it up for me. Great writing.
