An Afrobeats Poem- Wake Us Up!

Copyright(c) 2016 Adwoa Asiedu

 

Can you hear the sound of the African drum?

Beating ever so loud, dying to be heard.

Can you feel the rhythm of the night?

The old has gone, new melodies have come.

New songs will be sung,

Can you see people being set free?

Thy sweet romance finally breaking out.

And will spread like flames of fire.

Once we were kept in the dark,

Today is a different story, we’re now in the light.

Leading the way for others to come.

Wake us up!

For we have been sleeping for too long.

Wake us up!

Consume us so we can take our positions.

As Kings and Queens.
