I am an African

I am an African
I was born in Zimbabwe

My face has been burn’t by the

By the beautiful African sun

I am dark and lovely

I am an African

The cracks on my heels

Have developed from my walk

On this continent

I am an African

Black, coloured or white

This is our home

Filled with all kinds of people

Our child bearing hips

Go on

And the mounds beneath our backs

Make us who we are

Our trees bear the Marula fruit

We are home to Mt Kilimanjaro

I am an African

And I am also dark and lovely

From the Cape

To the pyramids of Egypt

I am an African
