Black is the colour
Strength is the glamour
Our Pain is the symbol
Our Breath gives us vision

Slavery has dined with us
Nationalism has refined us
Illiteracy was an enemy
Education now our academy

We are Negroids by race
But war lords by grace
We are giants in need
Most importantly,we are Africans in deed
