God has sent unto them that mourn in Zion, Beauty for Ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be Glorified. (Isa 61:3)

 Poem  – Beauty for Ahses

She finally managed to get up from the ground

Where for years and years she had been bound.

Meant to reign in life, But for heartless Africans, so mean

Shame, reproach and ridicule are how they wanted her seen.

 *   *   *

But she gathered strength in Spirit to scream “no more!!”

Then clearly she see’s a bright open door

As long as no one can stop the Sun from shining.

No one can stop a Man’s Glory rising.

 *  *  *

**Ps. I think only Africans can relate to this poem.
