Africa in My Heart©



She’s the beat in my heart
The air in my breath
The spirit in my soul


She’s entwined in the melanin of my skin
The rhythm of my steps
The swing of my hips


She flaunts in the kink of my hair
The roundness of my nose
The fullness of my lips


She’s the lineage in my genes
The legacy in my ancestry
The history in my story
