*Little Lady*

Little lady
Adorned in the spirits
Of the African beads
Your story is blessed

Your birth saw smile beams
Your first cry tickled the buds of joy
Bathed in the fragrance of flowers
Suckling sweet from mother’s breast
Destined to be of women, the best

You will be the African woman
Glowing in pride and power
You will nurture the prowess of men.
Yet kneel before the knees of men
So they will lay bare under your feet.

Do not chase haste
But learn the ways of a Queen
For your daughters will be princesses worshipped by beauty
And your sons will be princes drenched in valour

Little lady
Adorned in the spirits
Of the African beads
Your story is blessed. Indeed !!
