For She is a threat of String


This is who you are Women a threat of string holding everything together.

“Strength like no other

Standing at a child’s grave.

Passion like a great lover

Holding me in her arms.

Love so steep

It makes my fear sleep.

Kindness so rear

It makes my heart cheer.

Tenderness so gentle

It makes every moment sentimental.

You see potential

It makes my Future essential

For once I am excited

The fire within me has been lighted

So be enlightened because the women inside have been ignited.

No fear of the future or being frightened

The Lord made a way and the path is brightened.

She smiles and knows He’s with them even in a thousand miles

As she walks one last time down the golden aisle”

-Nadia Basson

I wrote this poem for my two grandmothers on Women’s day this year. They made me believe that women in God can do anything as long as their heart is in Him, no person can break them and no circumstance can shake it, no walls are too steep and no waters too deep after all Our Life Guard Jesus Christ walks on water.


Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”- Isaiah 41:10
