AFRICAN WOMAN...I AM


I'm Female.
A woman
A symbol of strength..but yet, the weaker vessel
So it is said
But I tell you
My strength...surpasses a thousand men
No
Not physical strength...
Emotional, Spiritual, Character...

I'm an African woman..an African child
My family first...
Not because its required
It's the path I choose
The road I tread
Many a female soul has trodden
What makes me different...

I am me
I dream, I imagine, I create
I laugh, I cry, I hurt, I love
Ask God, and he'll "story" you
Many a night I've spent broken
My heart ready to give out...
But then the morning comes
A renewed strength of purpose
No, Maman
You can't give up just yet
You are strong...you are an African woman
African Child

I hurt, I cry
Does that make me weak...
Many agonizing nights
Yes..you just didn't know
I don't talk about it
But me and God,
We talk about it
We're cool
Thats good enough...

I'm young
Wisdom of old men, I have not
But I'm not stupid
I'm blessed with wisdom
Sometimes...
I wonder why God blessed me so
Am I so different...

I hustle, I struggle,
It's my drug
So I'm not complaining

I'm fiercely independent
But I doubt myself
Can I do it...

When I speak
I inspire..I give hope
What if I fail you...

I believe in your capacity
I trust your motives
I help you
We have a lot in common
But we met just yesterday
I dont know you
But you're my brother
My sister
I accept you
Of course I have to
I'm a child of Mama Africa

I'm just a woman
Flesh and blood
African child
Attached to the land
It flows in my veins

I'm just a woman
Still the weaker vessel
African Child
Only stronger

Yes
I AM just a woman
Not only a woman
An African child

I am New Age Africa








PASTOR I WAN BE YA COMBI! lol



Its very funny how the most random thoughts pop up when I least expect them!
Just this evening I remembered a story I heard about a month back. Its about Petit Pays...well that says it all...if you don't know who he is, google or youtube him.
Anyways the story is that...He visited Profet T.B Joshua, one of the top televangelist in Africa today...well after Pastor Chris.
So anyways he visits the pastor at his church in Lagos, SYNAGOGUE CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS in order to receive healing and deliverance. The question that looms in everybody's mind is ''what reason took this man there''. Petit Pays complained to the man of God that he has been suffering from chronic stomach pain,evil attacks and marital problems.He claimed to have traveled right to India for cure to no avail so he has taken a bold decision to come to the church. After the man of God laid hands on Petit Pays stomach, he then turns and tells T.B JOSHUA ''I want be ya combi''
hahaha and all this was broadcasted via SATELITE! the question in my mind is...is this dude serious??? lol
hmmm...wonders shall never end!

WHO AM I?

In my mind, I am a blind man seeking for vision.

"Who am I?" is only a question.

Am I the river separating the forest from the desert?

I know I should be the missing tone

between noise and silence.

I came with nothing still I want to give it all.

"To nature for nature, I owe it all." This is my motto.

Still, who am I?


The best way to know me is to love me.

If you do not know me, do not judge me.

Appearance is not reality.

I am black, I am white-these colors,

those words mean nothing to me.

Human blood, I know, is red

neither black nor white.


Who am I?

Was I a bad person before?

If it is my past that makes me,

Then I am history

that could be changed.


To err is human, correct me do not condemn me.

My pedigree may not be well defined

still it can be refined.

Words are all I have left but in which language

should I express myself?


I am simple; I am complex,

I am like poetry. I am who you take me for.

I am me you are you. Only God knows what

I don`t know what I should be.

I can only run from what chases me

from outside not from within.

I love it...,

Life!

Help me break the barriers

and build the bridges.

`Till then, I am nothing but a dreamer.

I really do not know who I am; but, for sure,

I know there would never be another me.

CAMEROON, LAND OF OPPORTUNITY!!


According to our ever so benevolent Father up above, Monsieur le President Paul Biya, in his new year's speech to the Cameroonian people said Cameroon is a land of OPPORTUNITY! What an oxyMORON. Since when was Cameroon a land of opportunity???

Well...yea if you were in the business of filling your coffers with embezzled money..then Cameroon sure is a land of opportunity! I can't even think about this reasonably because it "blows my imagination" with its arrogant hilarity! I can't believe after calling his own people "Apprentice Sorciere" or Apprentice Witches (which makes HIM Master Witch) he would then stand before them, saying Cameroon is a land of opportunity. Hogwash!
