I am an African princess,
the lioness of my family.
I am a Jamaican raindrop,
the Scot’s prance,
the Guyanese waterfall,
the American slang
and the English girl.

I am truly quite a lot.

My speech is cockney
and Spanish quite a bit
and well presented talk at times.
I am the third colour
that can be.
I am simply me.

My roots are African.

I am the roots of a mashanshe tree.
I am the roots
of that sweet fruit
that grows on the tree.
