Africa My Pride - Poem by Arnee Akpan

Africa My Pride
Best known to the world
As a place of attraction
Yes!
Indeed we are the center of their destination
Oh! Africa my motherland

Oh Africa My Pride
A place where little ones prostrate in respect to the elderly ones
Having the rare skin colour, hair and other feature that makes us special and unique
Oh! My Africa, Oh! My Motherland
Even with the diversity of our language, religion and so on,
We have stood united and strong
Agriculture, civilisation, unity, peace and love
We possess them all
Oh! Africa
Mother of the blacks
Home of all Negros

Our fathers built this fortress with their strength and patriotic actions
But the greedy souls of today, have been cursed to destroy it
Lets stand up for Her
Oh! Africa
A land rich with gold, silver, bronze and other natural resourses
Shall I compare Her to an Iroko tree?

Oh! My Africa, My Motherland
My Africa, My Pride.

    Thanks, Anny. That's the way one must love his or her Motherland. I bow my head to the lovely people of the Continent of Africa and all that it stands for. I quote a beautiful line:
    Having the rare skin colour, hair and other feature that makes us special and unique
    Oh! My Africa, Oh! My Motherland
