We Are The People, The People Of Africa. - Poem by ANTHONY ANIGBATA

We are the people, the people of Africa
We are black and proud
We are mighty and strong
We are the giants in the green Sahara;
We are the people, the people of Africa

We have been tested by the sun
Yet our skin still tough
Like the Kilimanjaro mountain;
We are the heirs of a daring hunter
We are the people, the people of Africa

The black men and women
The black kids, who are kind
The shepherds on the sun scotched soil;
We are the people, the people of Africa

Tell the world we are here
Tell the world long we will stay
Tell the world here belong to us;
For we are the people, the people of Africa

The natives of a patterned land
The heirs of a great ancestry
The descendant of a daring warrior;
We are the people, the people of Africa.

Call us this-
The great giants in the ancestral savannah
Call us the dwellers, where the tall mountains
Challenge the blue sky
For we are the people, the people of Africa

    I like the insight, articulation and penning of the piece. Indeed, we Africans are blessed with rich cultural heritage and ancestry to be proud of. Thanks for sharing Anthony. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
