    sittin here thinkin i am mother africa
    thinkin of my children all over da world from europe 2 america
    ive been thru hell fightin 2 be free n 2 gain independence
    2 mentain i still have 2 fight
    to top it all my children dont respect me,so daily i cry
    as a good mother all i wanted is 2 c my children unite
    but some choose to believe in the lies
    about me cuz my enemies hate 2 see me rise
    so some of my children dont have me on they lips or in they eyes
    to them i just dont exist,im outta sight
    my children would rather live by another man's rules
    on another man's land
    than to come back to what belong to them,the motherland
    im in pain so i shout tryin 2 get my childrens attention
    all im sayin is listen
    i gave birth 2 u(blackpeople)da atleast u can do is pay me a visit
    but i know some of u have already made ur decision
    im still in pain but at the same time
    proud of what my sons n daughters have become
    both in and outside my land

    Africa speaks from the heart, giving so much, receiving so little in return. Truth spoken here, poet, speak on!

    Wow rapchild, Thats a great peom.
    Ghana @50 is worth celebrating. We've been through a lot.
    This year should be a year of reflection, thinking or meditation. How do we go forward. Cos i feel ashamed when we use 20 million dollars to celebrated when i can't get stable eletricity every other five days or good drinking water and it hurts me to know that many of the youth are uneducated or cant afford to go to school.
    Think of that.

    Truth in writing.

    Ibrahim has a good point, think of the World Cup soon in Azania (South Africa). I am so disgusted at some of our people.

    Keep reppin' rapchild, loving it - show us more of that.

    One.
