I traveled and see
The mount of glory
Where animal and person
Live as friends
The mountain of peace
Caries two peaks
Home of wonders
Guests be keen on

Mawenzi is the smaller
Kibo is the taller
They all have snow
Melts to life juice

The mountain is splendor
Tanzania must celebrate
sheltered colonizers and travelers 
Kilimanjaro is the mount
Where lord was worshiped
A mount of glory where glory lives
Dare not  missing once in being

People come people go
They dare again going
They felt the beauty
More and they live
Our friends and neighbors
Live in mount’s gossip 
That we play and teasing

Though lucky than them
Still illiterate and stupid

Of all the years!
No body had volunteered
Made policies
that attract sightseer
Only is thought
pouching and smuggling  
I hate this life, full of poverty
On natural richness!

    Hi Lucas....if I understand this poem correctly...this wonderful place exists there that could bring money to your people but the country won't try to bring tourists in because they are afraid of thieves? If I'm way off sorry...some poetry is over my head.... And the last two lines of your poem say much..take care....God bless....

    What a shame Lucas....greed does and always has made people all over the world stupid!!!!! What does a person need but food clothing and safety? Until we meet our maker? Just love.....for one another...and God..I pray you meet the people to help you escape these conditions friend....

    Yes Dona this is how it is here in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and it in our country but we fail to make god policies to attract tourist instead our neighbors are using the place to get money. Thanx for the comment madam!
