Little black child

LITTLE BLACK CHILD By:shanice Xaba (Zulu lullaby) Thula thula thula mntwana Thula sana, thula umama uzobuya ekuseni Little black child Oh innocent soul oh little black gold I am sorry you had to face this but I Guess your mother never expected You to be like this, I'm sorry that your Mother had to leave you in a dustbin And as the weather starts to change And when the pain starts to ache you Remember the day you screamed and The rain put you to sleep and you couldn't Even breathe, I'm sorry that you had to go Through those things. LITTLE BLACK CHILD I know you've never felt your mother's love You've never felt your mother's touch Probably because of her selfish heart She chose to throw you rather than to mould You. She chose to ignore you rather then to love you LITTLE BLACK CHILD Oh little black child, dont worry I adore you I admire the way you stood up strong and tall I love the way you moulded up, the way you Gloaded up..oh little black child will it be alright If I admired the beauty I see in you and wait I am not talking the beauty on the outside but I am talking about the beauty that I see on your Inside you know even though you are full of scars Your beauty still outshines and I'm not lying Little black child I wish I could make you mine Just let me hold you close to me cause I just Want a little black child and I dont care if you're Covered in scars, Come on little black child let Me make you mine let me do all the things that Your mother failed to do oh look how I moulded You with my poetry now can you see I just did What your mother failed to do. LITTLE BLACK CHILD Please dont cry Please just smile Cause I wanna see you shine Oh little black child look at you now
