AFRICAN CHILD Specie with a complex destiny An offspring endowed by divinity Even so, a victim of circumstance This is the tale of the African child’s chance Rising above many odds, he is a voice Conflicting with loads of choice, Yet he stands out, unchallenged. Tucked away in the ambiance of nature, In the wild, but a civilized setting, Is his world made real? Born into natures friendly manger, The mountains, forest, stream, rivers Even the people all commune to make it a unit So much, an alien to civilizations rashness Indeed, a child with organic roots. Communal ism makes his day a promise Globalization threaten his dreams Born a warrior, but a soldier of circumstance Yet still, an ambassador of peace Just a humble kiss, form wisdom lips With outstanding skills he leaps A chance by fate, he rules the world However deprived, he is a child of destiny. Weep not! Oh! African child Your reality, is a challenge to build Your continent, an ark for all Denouncing race and tribe, You won’t ask a fee A sound character, a noble mind, Makes you shine. With robust humility, You have kept your line African child, you are a pride to all. Riding on your dreams wing Your circumstance, is not your barrier Not daring a tomorrow, is a fault With silent stride of an ant None saw you coming, to make a bang Yet, on persistence you tugged Building a sure dream, One day it will be for real. In universal applaud and undying faith, Only on the audacity of hope, Yes, very well, All eyes will see and dream your dreams. You are a champion Only dig in within, the inside is golden Your chance is as bright as others All wait you exhale your virtues Yes! Manifest them A world wait you excel So they can exhale in relief. African child It’s your epoch to reign Unleash , the king in you The stage as kingdom, Your lead will direct All hail the African child! We hail the king in you As always, you will be our hero Strong in defeating our zero. INSIDE THIS CHILD LIES THE TRUE BEAUTY, HE IS NOT THE BEAST HE HAS BEEN MADE TO BECOME.ONLY A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE. - AUTHOR: FELIX JOSEPH OSAEGHEMEDE, +2348037825027.
