She wished she was born in September, 

crowned by Aster  

& Morning Glory, 

wearing skin of alabaster. 

But it wasn’t her story— 

Her eyes were like sapphires, 

with cosmic lights in her Afro. 

She lights up rooms wherever she goes, 

people wanted to feed upon her fire. 

But she thought herself unworthy, 

another cute groupie at the show— 

when Kool & the Gang played their hit, 

she got into it, 

swaying to the music, to & fro. 

She didn’t know  

she had the power 

to make her dreams come true. 

So come along, dear September: 

Let’s see what you could do.
