Was I THROWN TO this EARTH to VANISH AND FALL? NO!
FROM the womb, I came Home. I came Here, not to be REJECTED
I am a fragile and innocent child- yes!. But I have a woman in ME capable of camouflaging into violet shadow.
My LIFE is my KINGDOM. Beneath my huge dark eyes I gaze to QUEEN it within my wandy way
My RED TONGUE was not just made to taste the left over from the gutters to make me frail
It WILL TASTE the delicacy of this soil
My lips was not put to my face to be kissed by some man. It has an aim. It has a VOICE
My heart was not moulded to breath shallow from the trauma of sexual violence
I SHALL Use it to sing in a rhythm that I ALONE UNDERSTAND
This FINGERS of mine are not meant to tire in trying to catch my dreams which seems disperse in billowing clouds of local kitchen smokes and foreign explosives.
I have a VISSION,i have a PLACE here and it is not UNKNOWN
In my HORMONE is BLACK, RED AND WHITE BLOOD AND POWER
Yes, my nick name is Flower but
A BLOOMING one with PRIDE worse than Barbados
