Proudly African - Poem by Joshua Akinwande

Nobody decides the continent he comes from,
No one influences the nation he belongs,
No child ever choose his or her own family,
All happened by fate, or rather a divine arrangement,
I am from Africa the origin of life,
Nations of the black people,
Homeland of heroes now and heroes past,
Land of wealth and riches,
Where milk and honey flow like river,
Bounded by water and land,
I am African, beautiful and elegant,
Extremely black and exceptionally bold,
Having a heart of gold with a diamond skin,
Very rare with uncommon values,
My fist are made of iron,
I'm made to love God and mankind,
Always to defend the good and fight evil,
I am African, born African, proudly African.
