Botswana, My Beloved Country Poem by Mantho Joyce Zandi Koveya

Botswana, My Beloved Country

Rating: 5.0

Botswana, my beloved country
A precious gift from GOD
Botswana, the land of our forefathers
A beautiful country, yet not so well-known
The land of sparkling diamonds
A country with a loving, caring and passionate nation
Where peace and harmony reign
Botswana, my beloved country

A country so blessed, a country so special
For everything about it is “TSWANA”
Talk of the country – “BOTSWANA”
Talk of the nation – “BATSWANA”
Talk of the language – ‘SETSWANA”
That’s just how unique it is
Botswana, my beloved country

Born of a strong and courageous man - Sir Seretse Khama
Who, with boldness fathered the nation of Botswana
Behind him was a great British woman– Lady Ruth Khama
As the saying goes - “behind every successful man, there’s a woman”
With love, patience and perseverance
Botswana is what you see
Botswana, my beloved counrty

A country so unique in every special way
With a culture so rich and distinct
With a nation of its own kind
A nation so liberated and genuine
Loving, friendly, passionate and affectinate
That leaves many other nations with no option but to admire
Botswan, my beloved country

The land of freedom and liberation
The land where true Democracy is obvious
A country with a sense of belonging
A nation with a heart of Gold
So warm and so welcoming
A country loved by many beyond its boundaries
Botswana, my beloved country

I love you Botswana....
I love you my beautiful country
Let peace and prosperity be unto you
God bless our land - Botswana
God bless our nation - Batswana
God bless the Government of Botswana
Long Live Botswana, Long Live.
