AFRICA BY DAVID M. DIOP
Africa my Africa
Africa of proud warriors in ancestral savannahs
Africa of whom my grandmother sings
On the banks of the distant river
I have never known you
but your blood flows in my veins
Your beautiful black blood that irrigates the fields
The blood of your seat
The sweat of your work
The work of your slavery
The slavery of your children
Africa tell me Africa.
Is this your back that is bent
This back that breaks under the weight of humiliation
This back trembling with red scars
And saying yes to the whip under the midday sun
But a grave voice answers me
Impetuous son that tree young and strong
That tree there
In splendid loneliness amidst white and faded flowers
That is Africa your Africa
That grows again patiently obstinately
And its fruit gradually acquire
The bitter taste of liberty.
