For God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting, that he may give to him who is good before God.

Africa,
Where nature defines our existence,
Flock of birds symbolize our freedom,
Wild outskirts stream outstanding our oppressed morning lakes,
Rocky Mountains resemble a piece of our fossils;
Our land remains a figment of our imaginations.
Africa
Where vibrant atmospheric climax rage,
Sun beams peak into winter storms,
Ears bow to snowflakes,
Skin crumbles willingly to every rhythm,
Souls endure every pierce;
Our pigments darken no less.
Africa,
The horizons of Mount Kilimanjaro,
Soothing sounds of our Eco caves,
Autumn dies with every seed,
Spring resuscitate with blossoms,
We plough our African land with peace,
Breed hope every morning as we seek.
Africa,
Sons and daughters find home in Ubuntu,
Dance of diversities unleash emotions on capped eyelids,
Praises are sung to different cultures,
Ululation loose tune on every zest.
Africa,
We are proudly the;
Zulus,
Shonas,
Swatis,
Ethopians,
Ghanaians,
Malawans,
Brothers,
Sisters,
We resemble Africa,
We are Africans.
