When we talk about Africa.
I ask…Why have we travelled for years, yet not far?
Why have we survived the storms, yet not better?
If all Colonialism brought was bad, we have the right to drop,If what they brought was good, we have the right to keep, If they brought the good and the bad, we have the right to choose.
We want to see the Africa Dr Kwameh Nkrumah envisioned,The Africa Thomas Sankara saw,The Africa Pa Nelson Madiba Mandela dreamt of.We want a REAL UNITED Africa of brotherhood.
The Africa the Europe saw in that “Ship”
Different tribes, languages, countries, but in all they saw “One People”
We have come a long wayWe have heard enoughWe have had enough
Why do we still bring Pains upon ourselves,Killings, Wars, Genocides, XenophobiaAnd I ask, how better has any of these made us?
“If we share the little we have have, with Love, it will be enough, we don’t have little, we have enough, but hatred shared it to us little”
Is it safe now to say those things are in the past?
Dear African Youths, Elders needs us to Stand,Dear African Youths, the Young needs us to Climb.
Standing and Climbing needs a strong foundation,
we are that Foundation.
We are the generation to decide the fate of Africa.
If we don’t change Africa, posterity will hold us responsible.
If we don’t change Africa, destiny will call us irresponsible.
If we wake up today, to the future of Africa, it is not too late to say good morning.
It is better not to have lived, than live without a Legacy.
We want the Africa of InnovationsAfrica of InventionsAfrica of Solutions
We want the Africa that works.
…dedicated to all the African Youths.
