Africa is woman,
She is mother of all humanity,
She is strong,
She is beautiful,
She has always provided plenty.
She is colorful,
She is wise,
she is also full of mystery.
She produces the brightest stars,
which can seen through the dust and the mist no matter how far.
She is resourceful
She tries to provide for all her children,
even though some abuse her,
She is a fighter and also very forgiving.
She has so much to tell us about sorrow and pain
One thing for sure,
The sun will shine on her tomorrow once again.
