AFRICA MY AFRICA
A continent carved out of glory
enriched with fertile soil on which the world grow
decked with bronze, embedded with gold, crowned with ivory
the greener pasture land, the land milk flourish and honey flow,
Africa! The land of lands, the mother of the lands
the cradle civilazation took its first stand
a land of bountious harvest: where the rain wet, and....
.....the sunshine nortures what we sow.
A land culture, heritage, tradition are everflowing ripples
a relief for hospitality, a tarbanacle for harmony and peace
with people of diversed culture, yet living and united as one people,
Africa! The jewel, the god"s golden fleece
A land harboured by people of white soul: the black race
people of great farvour and dreams.......
A land great heroes were first raised
a land hope smiles and opportunity reflects its dimple!
I AM PROUD TO BE AN AFRICAN
