Sorry For Africa

If I were not born again
Born of the water and the spirit
If I were not a covenant child
Through the blood of Jesus Christ
The only begotten son of God
Who has transformed me
From the kingdom of darkness
To the kingdom of light
I would have asked my maker
On my second coming
Like a reincarnated desciple
Not to put me in Africa
Africa of black people
Africa of Africans
The cradle of civilisation
The continent endowed with all natural resources
The most blessed continent
But the poorest in the universe
A result of selfish leaders
Who have hinged her life on UN aid
Sorry for Africa
Sorry for Africa
I will not come a second time
Because I am child of God
Heaven is my home
