Of many nations
Crossed bridges and walls
Cracked history of hate
Henna and wine
Salt and pepper
Of many tribes
Of mountains climbed
And oceans crossed.
Has tasted Palm oil
Yet knows a drizzle
Of olive oil
Africa calls you
Child of swirled skin
You belong here
You belong there.
For My beautiful children

Thank you very much🙏. I enjoy writing.
Do you have family still back in Uganda(?)(can’t remember your origin) My daughter’s father took her to Zimbabwe. While he doesn’t know where his slave ancestors came from, he did want her to see a little bit of Africa.
Yes I do have family back in Uganda. I am number 2 of 8 children. That’s amazing that your daughter got to see a little bit of Africa.💝
