Ek is van Afrika
Ek is van Afrika
Nie omdat ek daar gebore is
Maar omdat my hart met Afrika klop
Ek is van Afrika
Nie omdat my gelaat donker is
Maar omdat Afrika my gedagtes omgrens
Ek is van Afrika
Nie omdat ek van haar leef
Maar omdat my siel tuis is - in Afrika

Please click HERE to read the rest of the Afrikaans version of the poem..."I am an African" on my WP blog. Wayne Visser has asked me to translate his poem and you will find his English poem on this link too and a link to his site where you can enjoy more wonderful poetry written by him. If you go to his site, make sure you read the poem..."Prayer for Africa" too. Also, read Wayne's message which I've posted here too...

Wayne has sent me this message via email, please react if you're interested by sending him an email with one of your poems in either English or Afrikaans...about Africa...
