You know

I never realized

That a world so incredibly far away

As Africa

Could be so close to me.


Look where we are right now

On this beautiful little piece of grass

Suffocated by a sea of cement

Oppressed by all the traffic

Look at the people

Running, shouting

Like they have all gone mad.

You know

I think

I just might go back to Africa.


You can joke

But you can never compare

This noisy artificial world

With the natural

Sounds of Africa.


A time strange, mysterious

Weird almost unreal

Looking to the sky

And raising your arms

You can almost caress it

And you feel inside

To the will to live

Your skin burned,

And you feel a man

More man

More sincere.

You know

I think I might

just go back to Africa
