My African dream

By Saidu Bangura, Praia, Cabo Verde (Cape Verde).

This is not a song, it is a dream –
A shapeless, colourless dream
Which you must give meaning:

Africa is capital continent
Free from the burdens of yester ills
Reaping the fruits of yesterday, producing
Independent dedicated leaders
Committed towards
Africa and Africans –
This is my dream for Africa.

Africa is free
Forte in progress
Reproducing committed leaders
Infallible, ineffable
Creating opportunities for her children
Actively engaged in development –
This is my dream for Africa.

Africa is borderless, colourless
Free from all forms of domination
Reaching higher heights
Inculcating oneness in her
Children as she
Aims to unite all –
This is my dream for Africa.

My Africa is:
Affluent
Friendly
Respectful
Indubitable
Collaborative
Active –
This is my dream for Africa.

Africa
Free of
Rogues, leaders
Indifferent to the
Continent’s problems,
Against its progress –
This is my dream for Africa.

Africa is sunshine
Full of rains
Refugee free
Illegal migrants free
Corruption free
Aids free –
This is my dream for Africa.

Saidu Bangura, Praia, 21st May 2015.
