FOR THE AFRICA IN WAKANDA

 

Oh Africa,

land of the beautiful, continent of the gods,

chart of beauty, foundation of human race,

complete with littoral boundaries of resources,

you, Africa, an advanced civilization in twilight

Wakanda is the present, telling the past glory of Africa;

 

Africa, quintessence of exquisiteness,

incarnation of rich culture and fruitful agriculture,

Oh Africa! How should I express thee in wake of Wakanda?

Africa how should I narrate your metier in the magnificent past?

and even now, your fecundity of virtuosos brought us Wakanda.

 

Wakanda, a creation in a continent of Africa,

you are a city as well, run by people of Melanin,

bejewelled so imperially like the lions of Selassie,

it is through you that we have seen Africa, Wakanda;

now, illuminate from the future and save the existing Africa.

BEAUTIFUL AFRICA

BEAUTIFUL AFRICA

 

Africa is a beautiful land with beautiful scenery,

your territories are filled with riches,

you are the source of us all, Africa.

 

Black is beautiful,

It is natural and filled with riches.

Africa is home to nature.

 

Oh Africa, you are endowed with good soil,

your land brings comfort,

you cannot be condemned by those stealing from you.

 

They sold us mirrors and guns,

with deceit, they stole our lands and killed our heroes,

they gave us burdens instead of their empty promises.

 

After years of scrambling and partitioning,

here  we are, putting it back in bits,

but alas! Our victory is here Africa.

I WILL BE WAITING

by

I WILL BE WAITING

Knocking on the sealed love,

tiling the soil of your heart,

here I am, watching out every day for this love,

open your heart Eddie, let me in, into your thought.

 

I will be waiting for that great day,

hoping preciously for that day in May,

the day you will open your arms,

and let your warmth into mine,

the day you will let me into your soul.

 

For all rainy and sunny days,

I, Morgana shall stick to your wizardry,

spells and enchantments of love shall flow,

like the river of the nine kingdoms,

our love shall blossom like the rod of Moses.

 

Oh, Eddie, I have got your moves,

this love is not what it seems,

now I know love is indeed a game,

like hunting game, so is love,

who becomes the hunter and the hunted now?
