In lands where sun-kissed plains extend,
Where ancient rhythms sweetly blend,
A tapestry of wisdom shines,
Where the African spirit finds.
The beating heart of Mother Earth,
Reveals the secrets of her birth,
From the Nile’s majestic flow,
To Kalahari’s desert’s glow.
In whispers of the baobab trees,
A symphony of ancestral decrees,
Resonates in sacred drums’ embrace,
Guiding souls in their spiritual chase.
From the pyramids’ towering might,
To Ifa’s divination’s insight,
The gods and goddesses emerge,
To heal, protect, and to purge.
Ogun’s strength, a blacksmith’s might,
Yemoja’s waves, gentle and bright,
Sango dances with thunderous grace,
While Oya’s winds paint skies in chase.
Obatala, the creator divine,
Molding clay, imbuing life’s design,
And Osun, goddess of love’s elation,
Fills hearts with joy and inspiration.
For in Africa’s spiritual realm,
Lies the essence of a sacred helm,
Where ancestors, both old and new,
Guide the paths of me and you.
Ubuntu’s embrace in communal bonds,
A unity of souls where love responds,
Upholding values of truth and peace,
And seeking harmony, wars to cease.
From voodoo’s spells to San’s trance,
Africa’s spiritual hues enhance,
A tapestry vibrant and diverse,
Uniting souls in their universe.
In rituals under moonlit skies,
Where prayers and offerings arise,
The rhythm of life beats strong and clear,
African spirituality we hold dear.
For in the depths of our ancient roots,
We find strength in ancestral pursuits,
And through the spirits’ eternal grace,
African souls find their sacred space.
So let us celebrate this profound worth,
The treasure of Africa’s spiritual birth,
Embracing unity, love, and divine art,
For the African spirit, sings in every heart.
