Black Is Beautiful…!

My identity, My heritage

Is African

I am African

My skin colour is black

And black is beautiful

I am African

I don’t live on the shores

But the shores nurtured my path

I grew up under the scorchy sun

with sweat cascading down my brow

I am African

I speak the language Africa understands

I share the bonds of family values

I pour libations to the gods 

The Diokpa (elders) must be honoured

I am African

I don’t live on the shores

but my umbilical cord was buried in the soil

When the stories of Africa is recited

There you will find my ancestral lineage

And Africa

will always be My Home

‘Cos I am African
