You have not disappointed me

Many thanks to you,
My people;
You have not disappointed me;
You could have failed me;
You have not failed me;
At first, it appeared
You were failing me;
My support came
From outside my continent:
From across the oceans;
America, India, what have you?
And I asked myself;
“Where are my own people?”
I felt disappointed;
Though I did not give up;
I felt you had not discovered
What your own was doing;
I continuef to have faith
In you;
Hence, I kept on digging
And hoping;
And I was right;
As expected,
The time has come;
This is that time;
You have discovered,
What your own is doing;
And this is your weight
All behind me;
And it is so clear
For all to see;
Silently eloquent;
Thank you and thank you
And thank you, my people;
Great, indeed, you are;
Greater than anyone can imagine;
Greatness I find in you!
Great people support their own,
To take greater strides;
To run and not fall;
And when they fall,
They hold their hand
And lift them up;
To continue
Their hard, sinuous journey.
Thank God
You have not disappointed me.
