Little Africa - Poem by Tess Rockenstire

I saw little Africa in your face,
Bold and handsome in your case.
I saw a door of hope,
A light that will bring greatness.

I saw a timid smile,
Earthly yet with great courage.
I saw a paradigm of self-reliance
Robust with stardust in your eyes.

I saw little Africa a dawn of hope.
A hero for all, at the end of day.
You are the future of tomorrow,
A wisdom for those who are forgotten.

Timid smile, yet with sparkling eyes.
I saw wisdom coiled beneath your head.
Grace and strength be upon your brow.
Heaven may bless your hearts desire.
