The Greatness Of Africa

When I look at the Nile or Niger My heart overflows with profound admiration As currents daringly flow on each iconic river Every fountain has wealth embedded in her waters Each mountain, sealed by the richness of its history This is the reason I recognize a path A path filled with promises Promises to make Africa great In fact, Africa is already great What a marvellous sight to behold! Imagine, a variety of wildlife in Togo Comforting sounds of birds across Comoros Outstanding presence of gazelles in Cameroon Supernatural nests of swallows from epic Chad Super Eagles soaring higher in Abuja Magical flavour on Sea Cuisine from sanctified Senegal Amazing pyramids in the gifted land of Sudan Breath-taking desert all over Sahara Beautiful girls dancing malembe in the colourful Sibasa Bubbly boys playing in busy streets of Kinshasa Men brewing special coffee near corners of Mombasa Women beading around some parts of Luanda Elders sharing stories at hearty homes of Rwanda Lovely smiles from the stunning faces of Eritrea Heartfelt love from the people of Liberia Eternal Spirit of Ubuntu in Tanzania Eye-catching mosaics around Tunisia Fashion trending all the way from Malawi Historical archives inside artistic Mali Vibrant traces of culture in Namibia Incredible wisdom in The Gambia Sweet melodies from Ghana Sacred forests in Uganda Serene Oceans of Madagascar Special works of art from Addis Ababa So many diamonds around Botswana Abundant copper from magnificent Zambia Hidden treasures in Zimbabwe This is no ordinary Continent But a place of contentment Everyone who comes here Is welcome at a first glance By the greatness of Africa!
