YES, I CAN by Hasheem Deza from Malawi

Start by holding my hand

 

take me along

the stairs to learn

like, little baby balancing its toes

so if I stager and fall

on your shoulder, I’ll lean

 

don’t sprout out

the hidden fruit in this cloth

it gives no clue

giving out children had no oath

so trust it over

 

I will do no less
