I Am An African ( Poem of the day)

Africa
African woman
AFRICAN
I am an African

Not because I was born here

But because my heart beat with Africa
I am an African

Not because of the color of my skin

But because my mind is engaged by Africa
I am an African

Not because I live on its soil

But because my soul is at home in Africa
When Africa weep for her children

My cheeks are stained with tears

When Africa honors her elders

My head is bowed in respect

When Africa mourn for her victims

My hands are joined in prayers

When Africa celebrate her triumphs

My feet are alive with dancing
I am an African

For her blue skies take my breath away

And my hope for future is bright
I am an African

For her people greet me as family

And teach me the meaning of community
I am an African

For her wilderness quenches my spirit

And brings me closer to the source of life
I am an African

When the soothing evening winds blow,soothes my skin so rear yet

And her values installed in me so core guide me through this earth

 so queer.
