Queens Park

To my darling child


by Naseerah Akooji


Oh my darling child
you don’t know how much
I want you to see the world

To climb up high mountains
And swim in deep oceans
To taste homegrown fruits
And drink straight from trees

To feel sand through your toes
And hear birds chirping high
To watch sunsets glow on your skin
And monsoons drench you down

To care for creatures in the wild
And meet different walks of life
To leave only footprints on this planet
And no other mess behind

From the wilderness of Africa
To the tropics of Asia
I’ll take your hand in mine
When we see the world together
Oh my darling child
