I am Mother Africa

The only thing i know 
about my identity is that 
i am an African, 
The only thing i know 
about my family is that 
it is scattered all over 
the face of Africa and 
the Diaspora. 
The only thing i know 
about my roots is that 
they are African. 
I am of no particular 
bloodline, 
I am of the African 
bloodline. 
I belong to no 
particular ethnic group, 
for i embrace the 
diversity of the African 
Ethnicity.
The rythm of my 
heartbeat is that of 
African drums
My eyes bring forth the 
African sunshine
My feet caress the 
African soils with mystic 
magic
The works of my hands 
speaks of nothing but 
African Originality

I am but an African 
princess
?????????????

    Kim being a south African is being blessed, and being a Daughter of Mother Africa is ten times the blessing. So Let's Celebrate Afrikanity.
