Africa:

Mama Africa, 
The land of my ancestors,
How I long to see you smile.

Misty waters,
Blue skies,
Bloody wars.

Sad Faces,
Starving children,
Many victims.

A nation no more!
Separated by greed.
Divided by hate,
Connected by tears.

Heaven weeps
As the night goes cold,
Oh mother land.

Why are your sorrows so deep?
A land of great richness and beauty,
Colours and diversity.

Mama Africa,
The land of my ancestors,
My heritage, my birth right.

How your sorrows consume me,
Shattered souls,
Dying nation.
