-Mother Wangari Maathai-


(A dedication)


Pain wracked torture
She suffered
with degradition smeared
was inhumanely beaten and batted
and consistently incarcerated
she stoically endured
All for her love
of her land

Her persistence
was not in vain 
through her efforts
Kenya's green belt grew
over forty-million
trees were planted
all through her motivational strive
Mother Wangari Maathai's
inspiration lives and thrives
Yet still to this day.
