Young and Hopeful Africa

Africa, you are young through us today No one intends to miss you to frown Your day’s today for the world to watch An amazing day God made us fetch Africa, young and hopeful when heads meet In Jinja, the Nile flows; here the world is to feed For coloured thoughts were nurtured for days On quitting the quagmire of woe for centuries Africa, this is a great day, and no one is excluded People have come committedly unexhausted Focused on African field evidence to ensnare This is the time for the experiences to share Africa, this is the day we have waited for We’d been working hard in unison under a mentor For shunning quandaries, today happily we deliver Ground facts for self-reliance and empowerment we offer Africa, this is the day your women will smile, Your sons and daughters will understand, That they have been sleepless for a cause. That they’re a family with a vision to applause. Africa, with a universally well-known identity Uganda is proud of us, African hopeful children. Jinja's expectant; she'll add us on her History list For our feet have stamped her green land The future is ours; smiles are on our faces. Poem by Mugisho N Theophile @Coference for learning in Busubi, Uganda
