St Antoine de la Vuadi

Where Africa is

Africa my land,
Africa my heart,
Africa my eternal,
Africa my inspiration;

Where are you?
Somebody has asked me
And let me tell him
Where you are.

You are between Pacific and Indian
Simple oceans made of fishers
More than that you are
In the centre of my spirit.

Africa is in me,
I am where Africa is.

Poor As I Am

I live in Kinshasa,
The foundation of poverty,
The summit of culture,
A strange mixture: I know.

Poverty is a general state
Our natural behaviour
And they told me conscientiously
That my generation is a sacrificed one.

Poor as I am
I am trying to struggle
Against all consequences of colonialism
Convinced that another day
I will become rich
As they say of my country.

Fictional Creature

Source of Love
Artistic picture
Of the feeling that organizes
What we have called life.

She has been my mother
Since the beginning of history
She is my sister
And my sophisticated lover.

Woman, my living prayer;
Woman, my show window;
Woman, my particular civilization;
Woman, my didactic approach.

Source of Love
Mother, sister
Or dynamic Lover
She is like a Fictional Creature.
