AFRICA, MY PRIDE
Arose me in the early morn,
Sitting under a blossom flower,
Thinking about my black race with penchant,
And the inspiring sounds of the birds,
Easing my thoughts.
Africa, the inestimable jewel.
The race of cultural manifestation
The strength of peace.
The race, not only do i call continent,
But my heaven on earth.
Africa, the heaven of different creatures
The paradise of great heroes
Blessed with gold,
And crowned with peace and dignity.
Africa, the matter to all lands,
Father to other races.
The Land of undying hope,
On the highest hills and mountains.
Like ghost of no child, we tell your story.
Africa my Africa,
My allegiance, i pledge,
My oath, i swear.
The greatest race ever.
" I am proud of being an African, the land of enormous harvest, watered by rain.
