Looking Glass

by Walter Rooks

African Queen.
how beautiful 
you are
and have remained.
An inspiration
through our
African Men's pain.

African Queen.
Smile proud.
How proud
you should be.
For you are
the Mother
of our
African destiny.

African Queen.
See yourself,
your essence
without mask.
It is all there,
of you
in the looking glass.
