Royalty

Revered and endowed with glittery paraphernalia

Observed by many around the world

Yellow flowers peek through the lot

Adored and adorned in both life and death

Laid in state for all to see, dignity bestowed

Treated and trusted with utmost majesty

Years of service and sacrifice appreciated

This acrostic poem is an opportunity to celebrate a great woman. I have grown to appreciate royalty. This must be a result of the chiefs and queen mothers in every Ghanaian town or village. The queen mothers are matriarchs we celebrate them for their strength and resilience.
