She has proven over time, that she can birth words and phrases of depth and intricacy. She has shown just how well her craft can bring serious social commentary into the spotlight.
And now Poetra Asantewaa has released a piece, which she calls ‘Love Yourself’ and it speaks to a problem that festers in all societies around the world.
In this new spokenword piece, Poetra talks about the things that women go through, all in a bid to be accepted by society.
She begins by speaking about how women are expected to look a certain way and how they love their “bodies until somebody says so.”
The writer then moves on to encourage young women to love themselves and be confident in who they really are.
