The Solitude of Africa
The Solitude in Africa toil and helped to unfold
Stories, philosophies, and lessons to be told.
Judgmental glances seeing Africa from outdoors,
Taken in by tales of the villagers living indoors.
The epoch of age pores on in utter fascination,
History in a trance did not cause by liberation.
Subtle beings on the horizon enriched in mind,
Striving to be a vessel that any mariner can find.
In the solitude of Africa, they drift along unanchored
among the cargo, the truth is the mental past stored.
Hope, steer alone, ambition try to stay on course,
Give guidance of a familiar path for decades choose.
The journey on life marks the increasing latitudes,
Constant improvement in skills and good attitudes.
Politics and riches the world has a little concern,
Africa, while satisfying, has a deep thirst to learn.
Democracy will survive, expect it to cause many fights,
The price is paid with our lives to enjoy liberty and rights.
Hungry appetite, this knowledge for success can outlast,
All the growls of frolic and thrills the hour has passed.
