Poem: It’s your time Africa – By Craig Ngwenya

Africa having no light,
Named the dark continent,
With our restricted vision sense,
Their racism rendered us blind.

We attempted for more,
Only to acquire virtually nothing,
We succumbed to the ravages of segregation,
And Africa remained a dark continent.

Oppressed by our antagonists,
Their terminology suppressing our dreams,
Territorial disputes and greed,
Over resources, divided us.

However, growing and developing,
Remained our perception,

Now development has come to Africa,
And it’s inevitable,
Rejuvenation is at its peak,
Making a paradigm shift.

Poverty is no more in Africa;
This is a proven fact,
It’s time for more wealth and success,
That gives more pleasurable gratification.

This is the time to let go and walk Africa,
Let go and run Africa,
Let go and fly Africa,
Let go and become a hero in Africa.

It’s your time to move from war to wealth
