Fulani Girl

Fulani girl,
You stand out depicting the grace, peace and beauty of womanhood.
Your white apparel is a banner for peace to which violence of hearts must surrender.
The milk in the pot you carry quenches thirsts of despair for all and sundry.
The morning sun salutes you.
The colours of Earth dance at your footsteps.

Man will acknowledge his need
-To admire you;
-To adore you;
-To protect you;
-To fend for you;
and Not to do you violence.

Kenneth Chiazor - Lagos, Nigeria
