~My African Lady~

I take a glance at you
My African lady
Your skin is full of glow
The color of the mountain
Persistence in your fighting
Prevailing among all
You gaze beyond the distance reach
A symbol of determination
Your heart is the finest
A lioness in your soul

Copyright Nasra Al Adawi



To say the truth I can not recall when I wrote this poem, it was forgotten for sometime and here it is I founed it with a painting posted in http://benjaminheine.blogspot.com/2007/08/african-lady.html. Added with an amazing painting. As attached above. This painting is the work of Ben Heine who is Cartoonist-journalist in Belgium. Indeed, its an honor for me
