My Dreams for Africa Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

I have a dream that one day
Every valley shall be exalted
Every will and mountain shall be made to low
The rough places will be made plain
And the crooked places will be made straight
And the glory of the God shall be revealed

With this faith

The jangling discords of our nation
Into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood

With this faith
We will be able to work together
To pray together
To struggle together
To go to jail together
Knowing that we will be freed one day.

With this faith
We will be able to put an end
To religion violence, bad administration
Put an end to corruption, poverty, unemployment
And unanimously eliminate all the hungry politicians
Who are the main enemies of progress in Africa

With this faith
We will be able to have a better continent
Where people from the North of Africa
Could be peacefully working and residing in South
Where people from South
Could be free from the fear of ethnic clash and civil war
Where Africans will see themselves as one

And celebrate with cheers and thank God
After the elimination of all I-don't-care, corrupt
And hungry politicians (leaders) in our various nations
So shall it be

When I examine myself, I see writing as the only way to express my thoughts and have been wasting no time, however little, in ensuring that I express myself. This is an inspirational thought, potentially instilled in each and everyone of us, but the ways we express ourselves is the difference. I hope to meaningfully make use of most of my time and positively share my thoughts with others. You can check out my site (www.yemmmmy.co.nr) for more of my articles and poems.
