KILIMANJARO

I traveled and see The mount of glory Where animal and person Live as friends The mountain of peace Caries two peaks Home of wonders Guests be keen on Mawenzi is the smaller Kibo is the taller They all have snow Melts to life juice The mountain is splendor Tanzania must celebrate sheltered colonizers and travelers Kilimanjaro is the mount Where lord was worshiped A mount of glory where glory lives Dare not missing once in being People come people go They dare again going They felt the beauty More and they live Our friends and neighbors Live in mount’s gossip That we play and teasing Though lucky than them Still illiterate and stupid Of all the years! No body had volunteered Made policies that attract sightseer Only is thought pouching and smuggling I hate this life, full of poverty On natural richness!

Hi Lucas....if I understand this poem correctly...this wonderful place exists there that could bring money to your people but the country won't try to bring tourists in because they are afraid of thieves? If I'm way off sorry...some poetry is over my head.... And the last two lines of your poem say much..take care....God bless....

Yes Dona this is how it is here in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and it in our country but we fail to make god policies to attract tourist instead our neighbors are using the place to get money. Thanx for the comment madam!
