African Child

African Child

By Zoneziwoh Mbondgulo

Beloved!  Children of Africa

Great leaders, you are.

God fearing people of tomorrow.

Today, you are honor.

African child,

The world is awaiting the joy, pride, greatness you are bringing.

For thy parents had messed up

Let that not border you

And do not be ashamed of bearing an African name.

Do not regret being an African.

It is not a curse.

For the stars in the sky could be counted,

But thou coming to you will be uncountable.

Stand up!

Be brave

Wisdom and the strength in you, shall you succeed.

If don`t repeat those mistakes.
