AFRICA
By
Awele Okwudarue
Africa Africa
A land so full of power
That stands strong like a tower
You are strong and black
There is nothing you lack
Land and fields are so green
It’s part of what makes us seen.
Rich in cultures and customs
There’s no other so lucky like you
Your savannahs and wildlife
Have never been seen in any part of the world
Though you were once despised
You have conquered them all
Forced into culture you didn’t know
You became victorious on your own
They came to your land
To steal your precious black gold
I am so happy to be a black
And I am so proud of that.
