Our dear little girl

Is now a teen

Or a lady, I should say.

To her sibling,

She's one of many blessings.

To the world,

She's one of many rare gift.

She's a fine poet

Skillful at weaving words like cotton

Molding and shaping them into pattern.

Our little girl is longer timid

She now speak of many wise things

Bringing strong men to their knees,

Making the ignorant sit to think,

And the heavens rise to their feet.

Indeed, you're a blessing and a gift.

Time has changed, and so have you.

(Dedicated to @OluKemsola on her birthday)
