Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
DON'T BREATHE, LIVE
Drum beats to the strokes of the wind
Feet stomp to the rhythms of the sun can you feel the beat
In this place, no age is too shy to move its feet
Do not shun the heat it will make you life a lil' richer
Breathe in the taste of authenticity
Originality is ripe in this place
That has been exploited but its sincerity is as modest as the virgin
planes of the savannah grasslands
As unforgettable as the pyramids of Gaza, mountains of the cape
Vibrancies of the west, and cultures of the east
As breathtaking as the cascading water curtains of the core feel the
energy in the soles of your feet upon this cradle of life
Live the meaning of ethnicity
Preach on grounds laced with traditional spirituality
Adorn your mind with the blessings of the fathers before
Don't breathe black, live African
