Proud To Be an African Child

African pride

I am an African child
Proud to be African
An endowment of God’s beauty.         An ornament of the radiance of God’s glory.                                                     Fearfully and Wonderfully made,         in the image of his glory.                     To do nothing but sing his glory.         Packaged to radiate his glory.             Endorsed to showcase his beauty.     Omo dudu.                                              Alawo dudu.                                         Duduyemi Africa.                                 I’m branded because in his resemblance I’m made.                       I am an African child.                           Proud to be African.

Adesewa OyinkansolaMy name is Oyinkansola Adesewa (pictured). I am 11 years old. I love writing, drawing, painting, designing clothes, dancing, and modeling. I am presently a student of Yaba College Of Technology Secondary School, Yaba-Lagos. I started writing at the age of 6. My first poem book titled “Thoughts of a Child” was published when I was 8 years old through a writing contest. I participated and I did excellently. Presently, I still write and I have written more poems outside the ones in my book.
