With the food for the stomach settled, now it was food for thought

And the lessons we learn from Blessing, are gems which cannot be bought

Surrounded by Leaders who’ve influenced their world, Leaders who’ve shown us the way

To live in far brighter colours in a world depressing and grey.


We heard some harrowing stories, distressing and painful and true

And we feel the shame and the sorrow beaten both black and dark blue

This passionate Angel Blessing, she taught at a Sunday school

But she’s so much more than a teacher, she stands proudly as nobody’s fool.


Her time for praying was over, now it was time to act

And knowing her neighbor and all their connections became her self-driven pact

And as she did this she uncovered, a modern Pandora’s box

And embarked on an activist’s journey without the throwing of rocks.


She didn’t bring politicians, she found a way of her own

She starts with herself, leads from behind, and nobody walks alone

Empowering others to lead, to change the plight of this place

She gathered the circles of dialogue and she gathered them all with grace.


Stop these attacks on foreigners, let’s have a place where all can belong

Besides the fact it is criminal, for Humanity it’s just plainly wrong

These people have skills, they have stories to tell, they can help our community grow

But if we don’t let them in, we continue in sin, and well, we might never know?


I sit in this circle as a Father, and my heart feels battered and sore

As stories of my fellow Father’s behavior rock me to my very core

How will I lead and who will I impact, and how will we Dad’s ever learn?

That love and respect and our right to lead are just things we can only earn.


“They say in life you get judged by the legacy you left behind

But where do you go when you’re frightened and how do you settle your mind?”

“Well I have a network of Love and things are not what they seem

And behind every activist women lies her dream and a trustworthy team.”


And now we have heard these stories, with all their horror and pain

And how do we live a quite different life without making mistakes again

Well, perhaps we learn here from Blessing who started just with herself

And what could we do with our power within if we dusted ourselves off the shelf?


And so she teaches these children through all possible manner and means

Without a salary or visible funding she’s lucky to feed them all beans

But yet she feeds their enquiring minds in the things they have to address

And she does it through love, and encourages poetry, and even teaches them chess.


For chess is a game of strategy which teaches a lot about life

About how to live in uncertainty and thrive in a world of great strife

Leadership comes unexpectedly, you’re never too young or too old

There maybe no mine in Bhambayi, but Blessing’s a nugget pure GOLD!
