    Complementary

    I'm waiting for my Complement
    To present herself to me
    A BlackWoman after my own heart
    Who knows we are meant to be

    We will not fight nor argue about
    What our Historical Destiny is
    We know our political life is public
    But our private is our personal biz

    Our wealth is committed to our descendents
    And our fortunes we'll multiply
    We'll create and foster communities of Knowledge
    Too strong for white men to buy

    We'll unite and merge all our families
    Sharing the joys of collectivity
    And our style of living will inspire others
    To struggle, with connectivity

    Together we'll travel the world over
    And bridge the future to the past
    Building a legacy so OutStanDing
    For centuries it's sure to last

    To be complementary
    Means to bring to each other more
    To make such a beautiful Afrikan Love
    It'll reach to our MotherLand's shore.

    So complementary, that you complement the ancient spirits looking down upon you. This was fathoms deep old soul, wonderfully written.

    ...any compliment to you
    would cause a Supernova like explosion...
    the world would definitely be changed...

    I adored every stanza...and emotion it evoked!

    Peace & Love,
    Sage
