THE 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
he is a child of destiny.
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
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,
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.
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.
