Born in Africa Lovely and rare Few others can compare To the depths of beauty and of light To the colors of her moods Sometimes blue like Billie Holiday Sometimes the color purple like Celie or even queen Nefertiti She constantly amazes and changes Never the same Like an African woman In Africa or in the diaspora No one can destroy her She grows, survives and thrives She is a jewel infinitely bright Her name is tanzanite
