mother africa


the world stands astonished
the silent mother has spoken
the dreams of a dark nation stands clear
once held in colonial mind
shadowed that he could not see his future clearly
today the world shivers for the mother stands up

from the ashes she builds strong forces
the great walls of babylon are rebuilt in her
yesterday she was called a no fly zone
she was given travel barns
her parts were sanctioned
today the mother rises from the ashes of libya

she becomes a warning to the world
today she enthrones to dethrone her enemies
its a silent warning, she cant be ruled for ever
the silent mother Africa rises from ashes
the world fear from afar
for no one knows her capabilities

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
