A True African - Poem by john chizoba vincent


A true Africa believes in hospitality
Not in hostility of his fellow brother
He believes in the sound of drum of
Wisdom in his ears for transformation
A true African believes in obedience to the law
Not in disloyalty of the brotherhood
A true African believes in unity and progress

A true African protect his home and household
He is a good leader filled with love and passion
He never shade innocent blood but sing of oneness
A true African stands for peace
He stand for success and liberty
A true African is brave and couragerous
He endures hardship with hope and determination
He is faithful against all life odds and pains

A true African is inspired professionalism
He guide, protects, secure and manage his home
He stands like the Iroko, unshaken by the wind
He looks after his offspring like motherhen does
He is a lion of the forest so strong amidst pains
Though he may fall, but he rises
He is a true black brother in lifeline
A true black brewries perfection
A true black skin is an educated fellow.

Under the rain and sun, he walks diligently for a common goal for peace, love, underserved kindness
And smooth drive to rekindled prosperity
A true African believe in love
A true African believe in loyalty and orderliness
He welcomes division of labour among his brothers
He never slack nor is he sluggish with his time
A true African is humble, disciplined and mighty

We are Africans, we are truly Africans,
We stand and believe in our cultural values
Abundence and unity in cultural diversity
Our soil are fertile and welcoming
We are the world, Africans are the world
Gay marriage is not in our blood neither lesbianism
And homosexualism part of our culture
We have culture and tradition to protect and
To pass to posterity after we are gone
Our forebears guide us from behind
Truly, we are Africans, the world see through us
Wisdom, knowledge abode spiritually within us

All hail Africa, all hail west Africa
All hail Africa, all hail north Africa
All hail Africa, all hail south Africa
All hail Africa, all hail east Africa
All hail Africa, all hail central Africa
Mother Africa, we pledge to you with our lives
Unto you our resources and love goes to
Forever shall you be hail and be lifted.
