+ Fav Poet


Nobody decides the continent he comes from
No one influences the nation he belongs
No child ever choose his or her own family
All happened by fate, or rather a divine arrangement
I am from Africa down the globe
The nation of the black people
Homeland of heroes now and past
Land of wealth and riches
Where milk and honey flow like river
Bounded by water and land
I am African, beautiful and elegant
Extremely black and exceptionally bold
Having a heart of gold with a diamond skin
Very rare with uncommon values
My fist are made of iron
I’m made to love God and mankind
Always to defend the good and fight evil
I am African, born African, proudly African

    A simply Amazing write my friend. Bravo. I believe and have taught that Who we are, the color of our eyes, hair, skin, the country of our birth, the parents we were given, all is a very personal gift to us from God Almighty Himself. What we do with that gift is our gift back to Him and NO ONE should EVER have to be ashamed of what HE gave us. Wonderful. God Bless, JB
