From Angola to Burkina-Faso, from Uganda to Mali,
Know that you are deeply regarded and spoken of.
From the Cape Verde and Togo to the Niger Delta,
Words of fire came down from above.
Speeches were made and by your very own-
They were all full of promises and poetry
Yet none were true and any of them was laconic.
From my heart to yours, oh Sierra-Leone,
With simplicity of course, dear Gambia and Mozambique
Are these thoughts sent: my Beautiful Love
I am expressing my hope for Liberia and South Sudan.
It is in you- beloved Blessing. And from your heart to mine,
Without any other choice nor hesitation, rise Africa!
These words just want you to be loved.
