I like how the sun bounces off your skin
I like how your smile makes me shiver
I like how your voice commands respect

Standing like you run the world
Walking like you got a 100 soldiers behind you

The mirror of your eyes
The curls of your hair
The twists of your dreadlocks
The chime of your jewelries

The lightning in your stretch marks
The thunder in your laughters 
The electricity in your kisses 
The warmth in your arms
The clap of your hands
The shock of your waist
The comfort of your womb

You're the moving Africa
The splendid cosmos
The waving oceans
The quaking earth

The air that revives my lungs
The spark that  ignites my soul
The light dilates eyes

Burning like a thousand suns in this dark world
