african dreamer

I am an African

Who loves his land,

I am a Blackman

Who loves his race,

I am a man

Who loves a woman.

I am the 2nd son of Bongongo,

Last born out of Bolankendu,

I am a proud son of the Congo.

I am a dreamer, who strives for his dream,

Utopia, the African paradise.

a land

Where the feeble hold the power,

Where the deaf have voices,

Where the blinds see the path,

Where the dwarfs touch the heavens,

Where the armless make fists,

Where the feetless walk distances.

I am a dreamer,

Who strive for his dream.

Utopia, the African paradise.

A land where tranquillity reigns,

Where equality is norm,

Where integrity is honoured,

Where beauty lies in the heart,

Where the do's weight respect not pocket dept,

Where the pen is the weapon,

A land where the binary notion does not apply,

Where the only ethnicity is humanity.

Yes, I am a dreamer.

I am a boxer with off..ed gloves,

Ready to jab for his dream, utopia

I am an African warrior

Ready to defend his heritage, his land,his dream.

The African paradise.


Author's Notes:

i imagined.Lennon was right,imagine.

i am a dreamer  but i am not the only one.

King dreamed,Mandela can you.

I understand completely... You have to be South African to understand that we live in paradise, and its worth fighting for. Good piece, very passionate!!

I always believed African warriors were poets. It's wonderful to see that there exists still some African warriors whose war has nothing to do with the shedding of blood but with the emancipation of the mind and the bringing to pass of the dreams of our forefathers: An African Utopia.
Excellent piece of art.

This should be all mankinds anthem. I bow to the power of your pen! Let the ink flow and not the men's blood. Savanah
