Ghanaian and Proud - Kofi Anane Kyeremeh

Born on a Friday
So they call me Kofi.
And from this black soil I hail;
A citizen of a great country.
Ghanaian And Proud.

My thickset lips,
Furrowed brows
And oily black skin
Registers my nationality.
Ghanaian And Proud.

Like the Red of purpose
Or the Gold of achievement;
Maybe the Green of progress
Together with the Black
Yes the blackness of my skin
And of my joy.
Ghanaian And Proud.

If you are African, be happy.
If you are Ghanaian, happier still.
Just like me;
Ghanaian And Proud!!!
