THE AFRICAN CHILD!!!

AFRICAN CHILD

 

 

Specie with a complex destiny

An offspring endowed by divinity

Even so, a victim of circumstance

This is the tale of the African child’s chance

Rising above many odds, he is a voice

Conflicting with loads of choice,

Yet he stands out, unchallenged.

 

Tucked away in the ambiance of nature,

In the wild, but a civilized setting,

Is his world made real?


Born into natures friendly manger,

The mountains, forest, stream, rivers

Even the people all commune to make it a unit

So much, an alien to civilizations rashness

Indeed, a child with organic roots.

 

 

Communal ism makes his day a promise

Globalization threaten his dreams

Born a warrior, but a soldier of circumstance

Yet still, an ambassador of peace

Just a humble kiss, form wisdom lips

With outstanding skills he leaps

A chance by fate, he rules the world

However deprived,

he  is a child of destiny.

 

 

Weep not!

Oh! African child

Your reality, is a challenge to build

Your continent, an ark for all

Denouncing race and tribe,

 You won’t ask a fee

A sound character, a noble mind,

Makes you shine.

With robust humility,

 You have kept your line


African child,

you are a pride to all.

 

Riding on  your dreams wing

Your circumstance, is not your barrier


Not daring a tomorrow, is a fault

With silent stride of an ant

None saw you coming, to make a bang

Yet, on persistence you tugged


Building a sure dream,

One day

it will be  for real.


In universal applaud and undying faith,

Only on the audacity of hope,

Yes, very well,

All eyes will see

and dream your dreams.

 

You are a champion

Only dig in within,

the inside is golden

Your chance is as  bright as others


All wait you exhale your virtues

Yes! Manifest them

A world wait you excel

So they can exhale in relief.

 

African child

It’s your epoch to reign

Unleash , the king in you

The stage as kingdom,

Your lead will direct


All hail the African child!

We hail the king in you

As always, you will be our hero

Strong in defeating our zero.

 

 

INSIDE THIS CHILD LIES THE TRUE BEAUTY,   HE IS NOT THE BEAST HE HAS BEEN MADE TO
BECOME.ONLY A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE.
