Poem for Empress Diamond on her earth day

You are the one did not grow up
you had parents
they raised you up
womanhood rites of passage
implanting dignity pride
dad was a Zulu King
New Orleans style
president three terms
no mean feat
in the Zulu Nation
he said read and travel
so you did
in search of self
divine royal self
found it
loved it
lost love regained
healer woman supreme
knowledge of herbs
plants leaves flowers roots
healer of all things
there is no problem without solution
and so it is
becoming wiser by the day and the night
you have allowed me into your world
as you come into mine
may there be peace and love between us
medicine man to medicine woman.
--Marvin X
