Africa First female president


The Clouds opened 
On October 29, 1938
The map of Africa I saw
Rising on the shoulders of 
Liberia for a great change
The emergence of a wonder 
To this generation
She is a magic sword that wins
Battles of transformations
Endurance and courage 
Have brought her thus far

First woman in Africa
To soar above all heights
Storms couldn’t stall her vision
Her determination opened every
Prison situation she experienced
Persistence and strong willpower
Broke all barriers on success course
Her faith she firmly kept alive

Iron lady of Africa 
A pride of women worldwide
Her legacy forever will resonant
In the heart and mind of
Every woman young and old
Her star brightens the skies
Her cause a right path to follow
As birds sing in the air
So will her iconic name be sung:
President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Africa’s first female president
