You Are Africa

You are Africa Every 30 Million km^2 This is you You are Africa Every 54 countries and even the 2 disputed This is you You are Africa The birthplace of mankind Sahelanthropus tchadensis Australopithecus africanus Australopithecus afarensis *****habilis *****erectus This is you You are Africa Your skin composed of Platinum and Pallidium Is found embedded in the Rocks of Zimbabwe From Kilimanjaro came your structure Both Tall and Mighty you are From the Sahara came your thick hair Bushy and Exuberant As far as Algeria spreads Is as far as your eyes can see Your nose smells the Ambergris As you stroll the coast of Madagascar Your lips Your beautiful lips Resemble those of the Queens that once graced the land of Ethiopia Your core stands erect Taller than Mount Mikeno in Congo The thunderous beat of your heart come from the drums of Ghana You Hands brushed over Egypt Thus erecting the Pyramids Your arms wrap around me Just like the Nile to East Africa Your legs originate from Tanzania Always Migrating when need be Your feet carried the weight of mankind You are stronger than the Elephants of Nigeria So when anyone equivalates your black beauty to sin Remind them of the richness from Africa you have within This is you You are Africa Africa are you
