Am An African Boy


Am an African boy,
Where culture is like water
Drunk by every human being.
Where judgment is like a mirror,
Showing People as they are.
The place where beauty is like
A pride that is priceless.

Am African boy,
Where the youth serve
Their fathers'-land as the second skin.
The place where a child
Is a doppleganger of his father.
Am an African boy,
Where the doomsayer are dying
And soothsayer are on their toes.
Am an African boy,
Where strength and boldness is like
Stone in the ocean.
Where wealth and health is like
The sand of the beach.
Am an African boy,
The place where work has become
The blood and veins.
Am proud to be an African.
Oh!
I love Africa.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
