Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
YOU ARE A STAR
Each one of us have our own uniqueness.
A completeness that makes us who we are.
A Star that twinkles, giving off it's own light.
So, then, why do we fight,
we try with all our might
to out do the other sistuh.
When we reach out to embrace their is a trace of resentment.
So much quarreling,
the cycle is whirling
faster and faster, round and round
But the sound is a whisper. We whisper and we
talk behind each others back
cause we lack the courage to face ourselves.
Wouldn't be a whole lot clearer
to turn and face the woman in the mirror.
When you look in her eyes, you'll see her cries.
Learn to love her, yearn to embrace her.
Let God heal the girl and set her free
gradually you'll see the woman emerge
as you stand on the verge of your breakthrough.
My God a Star.how beautiful we are twinkling together in unity.
If scrutiny tries to intervene, don't make a scene.
Just turn to the mirror and become clearer.
