All that you have given me, Africa
All that you have given me, Africa
Lakes, forests, misted lagoons
All that you have given me,
Music, dances, all night stories around a fire
All that you have etched in my skin
Pigments of my ancestors
Indelible in my blood.
All that you have given me, Africa
Makes me walk
With a step that is no other
Hip broken under the weight of time,
Feet large with journeys,
All that you have left to me
Even this lassitude bound to my heels,
I bear it with pride on my forehead.
Your suffering for lost paradises
All that, I protect with an unforgiving hand
As far as the clear horizons
So that your heaven-given task
May be safe forever
Maurice Anoma Kanie
