White Spirit of Africa

I wonder if black is the color of your soul

When you are float

On the dark ocean of mysteries

I heard my ancestors

Not thousands

But millions of years ago

Lived in a castaway continent on the earth

I think that time

The color of your soul was white

Genetic dispersing patiently and continuously

Afar travel to modern mankind

Some black, some white of any kind

I wonder if “Katonda” wisely judged the universe

When your men and women dispersed

Enslaved by their white cousins

And “Ogun” closed his eyes on the war,

During the last Iron Age

I guess in that time

The color of your soul was dark

Oh you, the realm of deities

Kingdom of powerful Gods

How was your color

When “Olorun” cried in heavens

Your beauty is irresistible under the rain

Oh Mujaji, people in south are waiting

Although “Ala” will not forget

The Ebola scar on your face,

Nothing reduced

Your incredible elegance

I admire you

Come out still proud

From the tug of war

Famine, hunger, disease and poverty

While, the color of your spirit remained white
