My Son

I was proud of you in vain
I sang your admirations for nothing
I proclaimed your bravery
Now i realise my folly
You went to rule my superiors
I considered it an achievement
But the fame you gain
Was for you alone
Now, you have join them
To act against me
Me that weaned you
My heart bleeds,
I am Africa.
