Dream On Africa - Poem by Ivan Brooks Sr

Dream on all ye children of Kunta
Boldly go where you've dared to go
Be happy, sing aloud Hakunamatata
Dream of the precious gems of Congo
Dream on Africa, Dream Jomo Kenyatta.

Dream on all ye daughters of Africa
And undulate your big round backsides
Dance on all you beautiful black women
For indeed you're truly Mandingo brides
Dream on Africa, Dream Sarah Baartmann

Play on ye blessed children of Africa
Gallop wild like the savannah's Zebras
Jump high as Maisais in nature's arena
In you are souls of great Timbuktu divas
Dream on Africa, Dream Sundiatta Keita.

Dream about Africa my warrior brothers
Uphold African tradition, live our culture
As Simbas, be protective of our sisters
For in their wombs lies Africa's future
Dream on Africa, Dream ye sons of Algiers.

Dream about Africa ye young men and women
Set for yourselves big and colossal dreams
Education will make you great women and men
And conservation will save our wild games
Dream on Africa, dream William VS Tubman.

    What a beautiful thought..... Yes, respect and protect women for in their wombs grow the seeds of a Nation's citizens who are to shape the destiny of a nation!
