For Zainab, A Fellow Poet

You are my sister,
Ebony polished
Standing tall and elegant
Like a gazelle.

Mother Africa is proud
to have you as a daughter,
But the Arabs grabbed
You for keeps
Then, your root
permanently etched on
the table of your heart.

My long lost sister,
Write to achieve your dream
Yes, your dream a poet,
A poet of note and class

You will achieve
If you work hard at it
