Tomorrow Africa Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Ayo Adedapo, Nigeria Aug 12, 2006
Child & Youth Rights , Education , Poverty   Poetry


Our own Africa
Like others
I click thy uniqueness Africa
And every of thy positive native
Tenets I nurture till thy printable
Structure shall sail by
Relatives, friends and loyalists
Above the burden and havoc
Of Ruiners' responsibility
And destroyers' decency
From tyranny
Thy provenance paved thy present
In it thy agents conceived
And evolved thy constituents
But thy moral children
Oh Africa
Forbid thy extinction
In maiming mutilation
And numberless annihilation
And massive miseries
Today social distress
Guards thy nest with inferno
Opprobrium postulates principles
Thou should adopt and adapt
To for better bitterness
In this peerless
Pains Darling Africa
Even as prognosis
Discards thy sick status
Our faith and work
Shall suppress thy death
Shall resolve thy miseries
Shall dissolve thy crises
Heroic Africa
Resourceful Africa
Thy doom shall reset to boom
And boom decimate its doom
No counterpart
Dictates thy deeds
Unless in collaborative
Trade for thy vision
And no child forfeits thy mission
With affective air of fake redemption
When coming moments
Demand new songs
From Wale's poetic idealism
The weighty substance
Of tomorrow Africa
Shall alter my tone.
