By Asherll Othabanye
Out of the shell little sprout.
Destined to grow as existence insists
To mature and bear fruit like nature teaches
sufficient knowledge, sufficient life
With enough to share.
Out of the shell little one
Out of the shadows
Out of that which holds your capacity
Out of the ups and the downs.
Destination divine, beyond the black and white
To be bold and stand out, unique
Sufficient of love and wisdom
With enough to go around.
Out of the shell little soul
Out of the galaxies
Out of that which inhibits your growth
Out of the mud and perceived pity.
Fated to out of the shell little sprout
To be mature and dominant like Mama teaches
Wide awake with more to give
Love enough, emersed, and ready to change.
Out of the shell beloved
Out of the shell my chosen
Out of where you don’t belong
Out of the world, to face the unknown.
