Native Fly: African Child - Poem by Vinz Poetry

In riches and peaceful paradise
I'm an African child
Born into the harsh weather
I'm an African child
Who must trench further
I'm an African child
Ashamed, not of coal complexion
I'm an African child
The finest creature
I'm an African child
Proud of my culture
I'm an African child
Filled of strength and power
I'm an African child
Far away from defeat
I'm an African child
Whose smile calms the wild beast
I'm an African child
Who aims at an indefinite limit
I'm an African child
So blessed with talents
I'm an African child
Who fights for justice
I'm an African child
Crying loud by casualties
I'm an African child
Whose blood made the soils
I'm an African child
Who never pray for war
I'm an African child
Renamed by slavery
I'm an African child
Vocalizing the one language of love
I'm an African child
Who dances to the true African music
The world shouldn't be complete
Without the African child.

    The child poem is heartening owing its sentiments of nationality that is Africa. In fact a child has not barriers of continents and child is a child in its purity and deserving affection. The barriers of continents, colour, and any other disparities are making by the man which is a negation of justice to humanity I think. The poem is well written and well said in its meanings and it is a nice one also. (Report) Reply
