Change the world with a SMILE

Great women of our time,
A great example to the world,
Women of value, of love and goodness
Mother Theresa and Chidinma Akaniro.
Mother Theresa says, Peace begins with a SMILE;
Chidinma Akaniro says, Change the world with a SMILE;
Women with the embodiment of love and care,
Understanding and encouragement.
In Mother Theresa, love brought hope to the sick,
to the helpless and homeless;
In Chidinma Akaniro, 
smile and hard work brought hope and ease to the youths.
Chidinma Akaniro,
A smile from you can bring comfort to all.
Your smile is real and from the heart.
Your smile motivates, and inspires. I love your simplicity.
Your courage has remodelled many youths:
Through you, there has been an extensive feeling of joy and determination to struggle,
Your success has always been in the present.
You have learnt to be happy;
You never convict yourself even when you fall,
For you, life is a school:
all must learn from practice.
You found joy in simple things,
No wonder you are a jack of all enterprise:
A jewellery maker, a seamstress, a business administrator, 
an actress, a singer, a mentor, a friend, a sister, a confidant.
Every family has its own Mother Theresa.
You are my Mother Theresa.
I admire your staunchness and your courage.
You are a friend of little children.
Someday, the world will speak about you.
You are the next level of CHANGE our youths require.
You are gifted with wisdom and knowledge.
May God bless the Youths of West Africa.
