    Daughter Of Africa

    Cuddled from the breast
    of the dirt the earths
    main ingredient of my core

    My creator blew breathe
    which housed life my
    great grandmothers
    ancestors of Africa the
    true Queens of strength

    Forgive me if I have betrayed
    your ways of long ago I’ve
    continued to weather the
    storms put before me even
    though I have dropped my head

    Forgetting the knowledge you have
    bread in me, the wisdom that has
    been encamped around me and the
    endurance that encircles my feet
    as I dance to the drums of mother-
    earth

    The beat of Zulu passion forbidden
    nights of Ethiopia’s river let my tears
    of regret nurture the ground as I
    repent in my neglect to sing my songs
    of victory

    Your crowns of life has bestowed me
    and because of the love that grows
    In me your peace has found me
    life is birthed once again and the
    spiritual hymns of old have found a
    place to rest
