Oh Sweet Mother Africa

By Emone Emmanuel

Before your awesome presence
Is where I stand to console you
For the pains of motherhood

They said your children
Are all poor,hungry and ignorant
They even call us beggars

But we were once rich
And we are still rich
Only that few are eating our riches

Weep not mother
Cry not Africa
Rejoice not strangers

For there is hope
For the blank land
For the sons we console their mother
