your grace and radiance flowing
so naturally about, projecting forceful,
yet sensitive images that loudly shout of,
BEAUTY. . .
Within your eyes a story is told.
As you have grown old, has life made you cold?
No! Now you’re still proud and bold,
for your SOUL it is evident you have not SOLD.
As a PEACEMAKER, elder and wise beyond the years you’ve seen,
your sunken eyes, they don’t tell lies
they hurt, but won’t shed tears.
Your honesty it knows no fears. . .
Like Madam CJ, Josephine Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer too
Mary Mc Cleod Bethune, why not YOU???
Believe in harmony, ultimately, like Black Women.
