The African Way - Poem by Chukwukere Timothy

One community of communal
relationship
We cooked to eat, built to live
carrying the burden of one another
Merry at the success of a brother. With joy, we tell the moon-light stories,
To the listening ears of our children.
I love the African way.
...........................

We eat from nature, and nature, from us.
We fished our rivers and cultivate our
fertile soil. We're friends of our environment.
The hills speaks our language
And the rivers sings our songs.
I love the African way.
..........................

This way our tender hearts were taught,
to grow in respect of our culture and harmony with nature.
To cherish and defend my brothers,
To acknowledge God and flee from evil.
To be a farmer and show the glory of my
fathers.
To dance when they sing and sing when I hear the beats;
The African sound.
I love the African way.
