My africa

Charles John Huffam Dickens (; 7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime…






My root is Africa,
A true home known only by few,

The home of many great men,
Men of great dreams and ambitions,

The home which men run from,
Men searching for opportunities,
Opportunities made only for a few,
The few who sacrifice life for food,

And many passed away by the things they know,
And only few live for things they know not,

Oh, brothers of the mother land,
Our home is so lonely and hungry,
So hungry for freedom and peace,
The peace of brotherliness,

Make haste my brothers,
While the sun shines.
