Dear Afrika

As the years go by I fall deeper in love with Afrika, its people and rich history.

Dear Afrika,

I have been so embarrassed to write you a letter let alone see you. 

Even though you raised me I was never taught about your beauty, your warmth, your wealth and fertile soil. Instead, I was told lies about others that are cold, heartless and have caused you much heartache and sorrow. Word on the street is that you forgave them, I don’t know how you did it because when I think about what they did and still doing to you it makes me so angry. 

I’ve decided to make it my mission to learn more about you. Hearing about your beauty isn’t enough I need to see it for myself. Looking at pictures is not enough I need to experience you for myself. 

I am looking forward to being reacquainted with you. 

Your biggest fan
