Africa, My Heritage! - Poem by Kayode Olubambi

Here in my heart

Lies the thought of you,

Oh! Africa, my beloved home.

Africa, my black heritage.

From your belly came the great warriors,

Whose blood cleansed our strife for freedom.



Africa! Oh Africa,

Full of God's own wealth.

From your deep shores came

The giants whose bloods

Our gains came.

Africa, my home!

The thoughts of you dries the tears

Rolling down my cheeks.



Africa! The labor of your heroes, past,

Will be remembered for long.

They were chastised, maimed, enslaved,

Brutalised, butchered.....

But their suffering unites us.

Africa! The hope of all blacks.

You never grow cold,

Africa! My home, my chateau.
