Of the World,
We got our Africa.
Or rather for its full of life let me say “The Beauty Africa”.
A continent created to ooze greatness.
To ooze joy, merry, enlightenment,
And huhu ooze life full of opportunities, innovation and positivity.
But Oh well! Sad as it is! All this happens to be like fantasy stories, like the ones our grandmothers used to tell us when we were kids.
All that can be heard are echoes. Echoes of sadness. Echoes of hungry kids crying out loud to their mothers. Echoes of a wailing rape victim. Echoes of a poor woman suffering at the verge of domestic violence.
Just echoes of wailing and negativity from all its borders and corners!
We speak of a better Africa. A collaborated one. One set onward to a particular great goal. A dream of Africa being the Bliss Continent. A paradise on Earth!
But we forget one thing! Oh well, Let me remind you. Oh poor forgetful minds.
How can this come in reality when amongst ourselves we are driven by lack of collaboration or rather hearts full of hatred.
Just a little maths here.
Lack of collaboration=Full Percent Confusion= Lack of Innovation.
Okay! Lets come back to reality.
When will the fun Africa day come?
Just full merry everywhere at the bleak of the day break. A day where we will all join hands.Like the way kids innocently do as they play outside. Irrespective of whether our hands are black or white. Just join hands in mind knowing that beneath these different coloured skin we got a similar red blood. A similar humanity. A similar heart beat.
Just Focus. Focus on making a great continent. Collaborate in togetherness in making a beautiful home. Focus on innovative ideas of greatness.
Working Hard. Everyone sweating out their part out. Sweating each day, not from the hatred amongst each other, not on political calamities, not from wars.
But sweating a sweet joyful sweat out. A sweat that we know amongst ourselves that at the end of the day, as the sun goes down, we would have a beautiful meal on the table for all us to enjoy and dig in.
We will sit round the fire place as we listen to sweet fantasy stories from our grannies knowing deep down we are living in this paradise fantasy ourselves.
And Africa will echo and ooze laughter, satisfaction and happiness. Kids will play out free in the sand, as mothers shake milk from calabashes and the men harvest honey. The government will be at peace with its people and the economic growth and innovation would have expounded so big than we could ever quantify in our imaginations.
A one big happy family. Simply because we Collaborated.
The Beauty Africa.
