Africa’s Pride


Basking in the welcome
Walking in the rain
Soaking up the sunshine
Wincing at the pain
Port of slaves
Place of gold
Seeds of youth
Roots of old
Markets on the pavement
Traders on the street
Worship under treetops
Beggars with no feet
Forts of cursed
Ships of yoke
Lakes of thirst
Spirits broke
Jesus Saves Motor Shop
God’s Grace Treasure Chest
Daily Prayer Mini-Mart
Retail’s heaven blessed
Grazing goats
Cows in pens
Roaming dogs
Free range hens
Bridges in the forest
Primates shy and rare
Anthills in the village
Bird songs on the air
Plates of rice
Laced with salt
Blends of spice
Drinks of malt
Fashion on the sidewalk
Music in the heat
Gridlock on the roadway
Dancing to the beat
Adinkra signs
Ashanti kings
Changing times
Freedom’s wings
Looking to the future
Seeing hope-filled eyes
Sensing a fresh vision
Of Africa’s new pride
