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

Homo habilis

Homo 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
