My White Tiger

As I sit here and ponder the question of how humankind deserves you... As I think of the luxury and comfort you deserve... I return to my senses and rebuke myself- How dare I think I can comprehend what you deserve?! See, you are a perfect reflection of God's image of human creation You are a Goddess, my white tiger- a rare breed You are refined and elegant, my living sweet fantasy Your words soothe my doubtful soul Your character quiets my blaring mind Your deeds never cease to leave me in awe You are such a contradiction of modernity Yet so complex that the former times just cannot claim you You are a definite wonder! See, you are not of this! You just can't be You belong in a paradise somewhere- where people are not fans but followers of Christ But you are gentle and modest enough to lead humbly because you know who rules over your path An African, a Black, Christian, Powerful Queen you are! Love Daughter
