Our stories will not always be so obscure.
I dream of a day when we have no more points to prove
Or comparisons to make,
But we stand strong and secure.
When our people are benefit most from the riches on which they stand
And have no need to bargain their worth.
When the oppressed cease to become oppressors
And there are tangible benefits for simply being born here.
A confident people.
Worthy of respect and admiration.
Truly at peace with ourselves.
Comfortable in our own skin.
Steady on our own feet.
Our stories will not always be obscure.
Happy Africa Day
