No Opologies

Written by: Robert Mayy

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.
