The twists and turns in your headdress
reflect the challenges you so beautifully embraced
like a Queen conquering cultures;

Even Time stopped to admire you overcoming your obstacles:
as you thrived and jumped above the prejudice of this World,
your amulet bounced to your tune
from your neck onto your eyes,
covering them, so your Soul
could savour your journey
from Gambia to Grenfell
in a snapshot!

But in a moment, you bid goodbye,
forever closing your eyes,
leaving behind a legacy
for the World to see;

You always told your Story through moments sculpted by Light:
in a World where judgement
is clouded by Sight
You reminded us to close our eyes
and observe with Insight.
