Africa's tear

I see a black man with unceasing goods A black man with grocery bags A black man with his for sale goods Are they goods or products dressed in cries

Africa's child looks to other continents They have replaced their own parents They wish to consume better foods To leave natural for artificials

Criticised their own language To be told non-vital messages In foreign languages English has become their wealth gauge

I see illnesses Not only the ones in hospital queues I see spiritual diseases in the wealthiest They see others in need and donate to charities Yet fail to see their own sicknesses

Money has been seen as the answer to all What is paper and coin to the spirit? Both the rich and poor suffer Is there one better than the other?

They fail to see their burdens One ridicules their indegineous solutions In search for western medications Calling the ones their God sent - Imposters

They will search every corner Consume every factor Unless they turn to their roots Poverty will be everyday's order.
