Africa! ! - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Africa! !
With my story,
The place of my birth;
Life and nature,
Life and love,
Life and dreams,
Life and joy!
Like a Voter's Card larger than a Newspaper,
Facing the odds;
Growing up,
Searching for the routes,
The very ways of mankind on earth,
But with positive morals.
Oh Africa!
The continent of my Identity;
Training and teaching me;
Growing up,
Facing righteous laws!
From the hands of the truth,
With the muse of righteous teachers.
Mama Africa!
You gave birth to me;
Facing the world today with my works,
To inform the world who i am.
Ear, hear, sear, bear, dear, near!
On earth;
A child is born! !
Thanks to my parents,
My father and mother,
From them came my Identity!
Here on earth,
With the muse of creation,
And to thank the Creator Almighty always.

    Nice depiction on Africa as a mother. Let me quote.. . The continent of my Identity;
    Training and teaching me;
    Growing up,
    Facing righteous laws!
    From the hands of the truth. Thanks for sharing.
