I like you very much
I don’t love you
But I have the capacity to love you
I want to be with you
I want a family with you
Lovely children with my gene
Want to hold you beside me forever
But there is something I crave more
She is like life to me
She has always been my first love
She is in bondage
And I want her to be free
Nothing else can take the place of this beautiful damsel in my heart
Not even you my dear
Pls love me like now
But let me be with her
I want a better life for her
Just as I want for u
Her path is filled with pain and betrayal
But I’m still on a mission to set her free and make her realise her true potential
My love, is my country my continent
And I won’t rest till she’s free and become the best she can be for herself and her children.
Mother Africa, your freedom cometh soon and I will always love you!
