Afrika - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

The sacred grounds of the gods
The temple of humanity
Screams in pain
Tears of the sun
Wraps around your skin
Sealing your nostrils
Suffocating your dreams

Afrika
The womb of mankind
The ancient lighthouse
The domain of the gods
Enveloped by misery
Afflicted by diseases
Unending wars
Infiltrated by poverty
In an eternal siege

Afrika
Hold your tears
Embrace your courage
Address your weaknesses
Bandage your wounds
Awaken your Spirit
Renew your Soul
