South Africa - Poem by Lawrence s. Makola

I am the reed dancing in the river
I am the strongest eagle
In the southern hemisphere
I am the Kilimanjaro of the world

Those who know me
Call me the sunshine
For they know
There is no supernova like me

My mind revolves around the world
My ideas are carried by dove of Mesopotamia
To share them with the big shots
To give birth to the strong world

I am free at last
Nations still struggle but I am free
I can stretch to the far most villages
And give what will comfort

My strength is astonishing
My shoulders are too broad
My legs knows the way
To the orphans, the grieving and the feeble

My lands are full of food
My store room has no space
My windows knows no opening
My door is not surprised by the knock

My kids are welcoming
Their smile is as white as snow
Their eyes blinking with love
For they understand
The word sharing

Come you struggler
Find peace in my comfort
Come you refugee
Under my battlement
Find strength and love and
Rejoice with me eternally
