A New Dawn for Africa Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Henry Ekwuruke, Nigeria Mar 30, 2007
Human Rights , Culture   Poetry


From East to West, we are building a bridge
Reconnecting for our continent
Time to chart our destiny here
To achieve liberation with our seeds

Sowing seeds for Africa
A time of rebirth with fire of our youth
The morning is set to set the sun
Reconciliation through our blood

Our generation keen to make history
Knowledge as our weaponry and
Right representation of our marvels and potentials
'Cause it takes knowledge to raise a child

Our journey is destined for this destination
A new dawn tagged freedom
Time to build a new society
Of truth and trust imbibed

Get ready for a new communion
Our direction is the crooked way
Without borders we rule our world
Ready to free our minds of poverty

It’s a dawning of a new day for Africa
A time to dance into the middle Millennium!
Dawn for liberation and development
Hoping to understand and act in time.
