DECEMBER BEGINS THE NEW YEAR BY BILLYHADIAT TAOFEEQOH ADEOLA

The world is
On bended knees.
Be more than a flower;
Soft, fragile and chic.
Be steadfast like mountains
and deep like the Amazon.
Dance like the storm
Hold dignity in your bones,
Hold your identity like a flag
And if anyone tries to eclipse your light,
Wave it in their face.
