African Lady

Giraffe, Sunset, Yellow, Sky


Sub-Saharan born within a State

As yet free from the growing strife

Then transitions came – all too many

Bringing a myriad of change to life

New lands in which to dwell

New tongues to learn and master

Yet holding to heart – traditions of a familiar past

As the world changed all the faster

For all the speeding roller coaster of life

From student to mother and wife

An African heart in her still beats

A heart that loves with all its might




Inspired by my friend and Christian sister Chrissie
