    Pick up the magic lantern ancient
    Daughters and sons
    Listen to the collective history of
    Civilization echo your lives
    Hear the drums of Ghana calling you there,
    Feel the rhythm of Masai,
    Powerful as they beat the pulse of freedom

    Smell the salted coast with its human cargo
    Moving forward to western slave markets
    Recognize its majestic beauty
    Let the melancholy tempo move you as you
    Dance in the tribes of you urban communes

    Become the keepers of its light
    Say hello to its wise inspiration,
    Discovering all the ways we are alike.
    Picture us together in the minds eye as we
    Work to fulfill such realities,
    Building a unified Nation
    Becoming all that we can be and ever will be
    Mothers and fathers,
    Teachers,
    Healers,
    Planters and reapers,
    Hip hoppers,
    Spoken worders,
    Prophets, Poets and enlightened men
    And remember,
    Momma Africa is calling us home

    Oh what if we all could come under this spell and live our lives reaching for what our ancestors could not grasp. Wonderful flow.
