Wakanda Forever

There may not be a real King T’Challa
Or a thriving African metropolis
Hidden away from the world
That didn’t suffer the crippling events
Of recent centuries gone by,
But there is an idea
That there is a version of
The African story that’s not merely
Sentimental
That is more captivating than a wildlife documentary
Unfettered by directionless politics
Bridling with economic energy
Where the “average African” is prosperous
Where education is not for show but for use
And where the children of this place
Feel no stimuli to leave for a better life.
An African population
That isn’t waiting to saved in any way
Or be shown how to be civilized,
But are prospering in their own land
Comfortable in their own skin
Steady on their own feet.

Happy Africa day | Wakanda Forever
