I Am African

How do I know that I'm African?

Is it the colour of skin?
Is it the language that I speak?
Or is it the believes of my ancestors?

I know this...

The first breath I took,
was of African air.
The first word I spoke,
Africa heard.
The first step I took,
was on African soil.
Every time my heart beats,
it beats for Africa.

I am African!
