Tell me where you are from
Is it as stunning as the land my mother and those before her walked?
Is it as abundant and green?
Is it as cosmic?
Tell me about your land
It is like mine?
Filled with history
Does the throbbing pain of oppression, tyranny, and demise make up its blood?
Does Happiness, laughter, elation, countless cultures
Race, exquisiteness, vigor, and power make up its people?
Tell my about you
Are you anything like me?
Is respect
Integrity
Relations
Love
Care
Consideration something that has been implemented in you?
Tell me
Tell where you come from
Is it anything like my home?
Do animals meander the planes, hills and mountains of it?
Tell me about your favorite season
Is it summer? Like mine?
Or perhaps rainfall?
I love the raining season
The pitter patter as it hits the roof
The children screaming, running and dancing outdoors
Ahhhhhhh
Tell my about you
Do you like the stars?
I love the moon
The diverse tints of blue that make up the night sky
The freshness of the wind as it caresses my skin
Looping around my body like a lover’s embrace
Tell me about your quests
I love climbing the trees
Sit up high, towering as I watch the rest of the world pass me by
The harmony
Tranquility
And serenity of my land
Is it the same as yours?
Tell me about you
Then I shall tell you how glorious my Africa is.
