There is a University on the tip of Africa,
that’s right at the top of its game.
it’s a place with a proud history and legacy,
pulled upwards by a future that will not be tamed.
It brims over with powerful ideas that again and again,
lead to potent action & real change… since when?
Six decades-long it’s been home to ground breakers,
change-makers, planet shakers – and it’s still going strong…
It’s the home of forward-thinking higher learning,
afro-centric pride & a story still unfurling,
independent thought that sparks innovation,
mindful, global citizens & their perpetual liberation.
Today, it’s my home, my springboard, my zone.
like iron sharpening iron, here,
my potential’s being mined as my mind is refined,
and my future: redefined. You see, it’s our time…
to learn from our histories, to never repeat their miseries…
to be the leaders of tomorrow’s victories,
e heralds of her epiphanies. It’s our time…
to stand up and find our stride –
taking Africa and all the world with us as we rise.
