Be (a short Poem)

The sparkle of the morning dew,
Fire that burns in the eyes
Of a lion, The gracious gazelle,
Daughter of Earth, Child of Star.
Birthday girl, Hear my voice,Image
Hark to my advice, The only
Thing worth giving this day dear.
Within thee is a whore:
Tame her; A Queen: control her. Or
You will find yourself causing
Mistakes made many
Moons before becoming babies.
Rule your hormones, Guard your
Heart. Smile. Laugh. Dance. Beware.
Be you. Be free. Be brilliant. XO

*Inspired by/and for Oyin*
