My African Dream

My dream, a dream of peace
a dream of laughter and ease
children running free
playing in the streets
without violence just peace.

A dream of sunrise and sunsets
the african way
where our hearts stay,
acceptance as we are
like just another star.

For this we are yearning
respect we are earning
Africa the nation without race
africa the reflection of my face
