Dark as graphite yet his teeth glitters

Cracked lips yet his smiles radiates

Empty belly yet his filled laughter

Under the burning sun eyes

Burning with zeal and hope

Bleak future dream at its peak

Magnificent walk on cracked feet

From dirt a rose spring fort

Black skin and a pure heart

He is African and happy
