The Water Princess

The Water Princess

I rule the African sky, so wide, and so close
I can touch the sharp edges of stars
When I dance, I make the tall grass sway
But, still, I have a wish
To make the water come closer
However, my dream never comes true
So there is only one thing left to do
Every morning, while it’s still dark
We walk so far
For water
We walk, walk, and walk
Until we hear the water running from the well
Mother fills the pot with water, full of dust, and full of mud
Slowly and carefully, we go home
Our shoulders ache, and our feet cramp
All the way back
Mother boils water for drinking, we wait
We wash our clothes, we prepare for food
At last, I drink
Every sip refilling my energy
I gulp it down, as fast as I can
“Drink, my princess. Sleep, my princess.
For tomorrow, we journey again.”
So I dream, I dream of someday
When we can fill our pot with water
So cool, so crystal clear
And we no longer have to travel far away
Someday
