Africa

Where in the World?
Are the skies - - - as big
As they are in Africa
The stars, the sun
The rivers, the moon
As far as you can see
Jungle, savannas and the woodlands
All that, make the bush

Where in the world?
Is life - - - so real
As it is in Africa
The animals, the birds
The insects, the fish
All that lives and breathes
Newborns, death, and the kill
The full circle of life

Where in the world?
Can you close your eyes - - - and feel
What you can in Africa
The sounds, the smell
The voices, the wind
Like no other place
In the air, on your skin, with every sense
You feel the texture of life

Where in the world?
Are the people - - - as happy
As they are in Africa
The music, the stories
The family, the tribe
Hearts so full and free
The (Hootla) Kgotla, justice and the Chief
An extended way of life

Where in the world?
Would I rather be?
It is, to be in Africa
