Explorer


Exploration, I’ve done
In the home mountains,
The virgin lands of our village
Stones I’ve turned, big and small
Thick and thin trees I’ve scampered,
Green brushes pulled down,
Wet and dry lands,
I’ve traversed
The untamed African lands

But then you still think you beautiful?
Oh sorry, didn’t notice
You are brown that’s why!
I should have noticed,
And also ignored the scars
you look like a fire ravaged forest my dear
not one explorable

What happened to the African lady?
The graceful girl,
Wang’are Maathai girl
I loved your head gear mama,
But I hate her synthetic hair,
Like the plastic plants,
Always posing as real,
You can never make a plastic forest

The flowing dress and the ‘kamisi’
Back in the days,
Was what made the escapade,
Worth stumbling for,
In the dark, deep forests
That’s what defined feminism.

Yesterday she came, her lips painted red
Smiled but then I couldn’t kiss her
Though I longed to kiss
The real thing
I liked her, no doubt
In fact it’s her lips I fell in love with
They were sweet and smooth,
Velvet,

That day, as the shadows waved goodbye to the sun,
Me and her across the river,
I looked into her eyes,
But its her lips I saw
The stars realized,
So illuminated them,
I wanted to touch them, wished to
But I didn’t trust my hand to accomplish it,
That shaky thing!
Nor did I trust her reaction either,

when I finally kissed them,
In the dark, on the fence
The day her mama had left for kesha
They cast a spell on me,
Seconds had sneaked by,
Got away safely without my realization,
There we were, in heaven
Full lips, Julia Roberts’,
Not wide,
I like it narrow.

But you painted them,
Why?
To look beautiful of course
Beauty is dark skin,
Natural skin,

I’m sorry fake brown girl
You’ve already shown me all,
Nothing is left to discover,
I was born an explorer

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
