No Opologies

I make no apologies

I am natures child
Risen from the dust
Only to return when I die
I make no apologies
That I sauntered when you tried
But I lauded the accomplishments you derived
I make no apologies 

That from the spring of my youth
I have grown old, learning the truth
I make no apologies
Though tears I cry
Of a fading love about to die
I rode your waves,I explored your oceans
But I was sunk with loveless emotions  
I make no apologies 

For taking flight
Leaving the darkness
Seeking the light
I make no apologies
For the colour of my skin
My big brown eyes, my stubbled chin
So formed and blessed with African ways 

Glowing brighter on sunny days.

    Beautiful write Robert! To live life with no regrets as to who you are and the actions you take is what many aspire to. You've brought out the theme very well and the lesson is clear - live your life. You are who you are. Very well penned!
