Treasure Island

merna ibrahim


Oh! You are a little black boy,
and playing with your small toy.
Oh! You are black from outside,
but your heart and soul are white.

Your innocence is covering you,
from your head till your smallest toe.

You are behaving spontaneously.
You are naive, curious, innocent and asking continuously.
You are vivid at day, and tired at night.
You are a beautiful flower swaying with delight.

You and the whole children are a bless had been granted from the Lord.
And I consider you all as a noble reward.

(the children are great, they are from the biggest blesses that God granted to us.....I dedicate this poem to the whole kids on this planet 'the white and the black' they are both equal.'NO FOR RACISM'......)

    Indeed a very cute poem from a cute poetess. Kids are
    like pearls and require proper attention. They just complete
    the families and play a role as a contagion of happiness for
    all the people around......10/10 (Report) Reply
