AFRICA By Awele Okwudarue

Africa Africa A land so full of power That stands strong like a tower You are strong and black There is nothing you lack Land and fields are so green It’s part of what makes us seen.

Rich in cultures and customs There’s no other so lucky like you Your savannahs and wildlife Have never been seen in any part of the world Though you were once despised You have conquered them all Forced into culture you didn’t know You became victorious on your own They came to your land To steal your precious black gold I am so happy to be a black And I am so proud of that.
