The Union of Two by Haki R. Madhubuti

What matters is the renewing and long running kinship.
Seeking common mission, willing work, memory, melody, song

Marriage is an art
Created by the serious, enjoyed by the mature
Watered with morning and evening promises

Those who grow into love
Remain anchored
Like Egyptian architecture and seasonal flowers

It is Afrikan that woman and man join in smile, tears, future
It is traditional that men and women share expectations, celebrations, struggles
It is legend that the nations start in the family
It is Afrikan that our circle expands
It is wise that we believe in tomorrows, children, quality
It is written that our vision will equal the promise

So that your nation will live and tell your stories accurately,
You must be endless in your loving touch of each other
Your unification is the message, continuance the answer.
