African Queen

African queen Raised as a girl of love As beautiful and colourful as herself, the swan But does she know how blessed her soul is? And yet in wonder she glows

African queen

Raised as a girl of love

As beautiful and colourful as herself, the swan

But does she know how blessed her soul is?

And yet in wonder she glows

 

She knows not she glows and trusts not when told

And hides in the refuge is her gentle, yet fierce soul

African queen

A woman of tide

Swept in grace

As temperamental as the calm sea herself.

 

How blessed you are

To have the bloods of this nation

Flowing proudly

Through your veins

 

African queen

You are a rare kind

I should know

In you a nation has found

At the end of this rainbow

A pot of the rarest gold

 

Birthed from the waters of the Nile

And trained and disciplined

By the sands of the Sahara Desert

 

Mother of the first man

The originator of chemistry, Medicine,

Math, science, history, the mystery systems and queen warrior of many wars.

 

She will not be disrespected

Dehumanized, disenfranchised

She is the mother of the world and human civilization

She will forever demand her place on the throne of African royalty,

For; SHE IS AN AFRICAN QUEEN
