O My Lil’ Daughter

O my lil’ daughter
My bright one
Through your eyes
I see another dawn

Pray for Papa
Pray the tides are fair
Pray the sail brings luck

I dearly hold your drawing here at sea
The drawing of our ship docking again
Joyful sailors at the port

I’ll always think of you and your Momma
Until we meet again
I send my love to you both on
wings of home winds

        1. Um, it’s very hard to say, WM. Yes, we have a couple of Noble laureates but that doesn’t mean the others aren’t excellent writers as well. But if you would like me to introduce you to some wonderful authors (from my country and Africa in general), here you go:

          Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
          Purple Hibiscus and Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Nigeria)
          The Mocking Stones by Prince Dowu Palmer (Sierra Lone)
          Blackbird by Jude Dibia (Nigeria)
          Night Dancer Chika Unigwe (Nigeria)

          I am excited you care to read about Africa and my country. You’re welcome to ask questions anytime.
