Of your history & beauty

Written by: Canny Amah

history & beauty 
speak in the volume 
of your silence, your calmness 
history & beauty 
speak in the volume 
of your sadness, your stillness; 
it is this longing 
to behold my princess 
’tis this striving 
to claim a niger goddess 
that makes excellent 
your mystery & sign of history 
that makes eloquent 
your native & inborn story.
