United we stand

UNITED WE STAND United, We Stand; One indivisible African nation, Nurturing, growing, developing, expanding, impacting, uplifting. We stand, we tower, we rule. We are Africa; Nigeria, Liberia, Algeria, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Libya, Uganda, Rwanda, We are one. United, we stand To break the bonds Of corruption and tyranny. United, we stand To rout the enemies of our peace. United, we stand To build and expand our frontiers. United, we stand In pride, dignity, solidarity. United, we stand As the unshakable monolith- Kilimanjaro. We will stand as one In the midst of a troubled continent. Our young will soar high, Our streams will flow wide. Our flocks will multiply, Our crops will satisfy, Our gold will beautify. Our land, this great land, This Africa of incredible magnificence will dazzle the world. Together we join our hands Standing on the mountain crest; Black Africans, white Africans, Joy on our faces, Looking up, looking far To the brightness of our rising. - By Kirsten Okenwa
