Africa Personified

I wrote this at a hip hop workshop i was hosting for high school kids and we were all asked to write a piece on whatever struck our fancy. Tell me what you think.

I am who i am, and i am AFRICA; beautiful, wild and free.

 Full of colour, drama and peace. Beautiful. 

As Ludacris once sang: the best women all reside in Africa!

Woman, bearer of children, carer of children, husband and elderly, sufferer of crimes real or imagined,

I carry it all on my shoulders. I am the strongest person i/you will ever know.

I am ME. I am YOU.
