POETRY: AFRICA, MY AFRIKA
WRITTEN BY BERNARD GABRIEL OKURUT
A land where poetry
Is spoken from sunset to sundown.
A place where drums tell tales of the past
While the stars, moon and the royal sun,
Whisper love in the changing seasons.
A place to call home, to sit, hold a pen
And let my hands write my heart out
In one lovely poem, Africa my Afrika.
Bernard Gabriel Okurut
