Treasure Island

Emmanuel Arunee Mwanza


Africa


A land so beautifully created
A land with so many natural beauties
A land with a very long history
A land uniquely created and filled with love
A land naturally green
A land floating on water and water flow on it
A land with attracting tall mountains of Kilimanjaro
A land full of fresh water basins like Lake Malawi
A land with so many different tribes united in love
A land whose people are caring and concerned
A land faced with many things
A land whose people are faced by wars, injustice, poverty
A land that seem cared for but neglected
A land that some consider a firearm test ground
A land where foreigners come, then add salt to wounds of the past
A land that is a source of riches to many
A land which if left to the natives will change for the better
A land which if foreigners invest and support will develop
A land whose friendly people need support of others to move out of hardships
A land in which war ends with education
A land in which women, child abuse ends by education
A land so desperately in need of leaders
A land in need of professionals, doctors, nurses, teachers
A land that needs true assistance not the unhearty talks and aids
A land that faces opportunities directly for development
A land that Africans can build with their own hands
A land that will be developed by brotherhood and love

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
