I anticipate your arrival

Made from my seed, her waters

and nurtured in her grounds

We count down the months until you bloom

We are unsure if you will shine a shade of blush or blue

but whatever the outcome,

your smile will be our favorite hue.

A cross pollination of different heritages

Roots fertilized in African soil,

rich in history and surrounded by opportunity

For you were planted in a better garden than we were

and the sun’s light serves as a reminder that today is another chance to grow further,

instead of another day to run from yesterday’s decisions.
