A post by Alfred Harry

I am an African child not a sex toy
Black  bold and beautiful, 
A treasure of fine stones
A pride not a prize
The glory of the black

I am an African child not a sex toy
I live for humanity not for the manhood
A bundle of joy not a sight of offence
A peace agent not a weapon of warfare
I crave to be wrapped in love not wrung in rape

I am an African child not a sex toy
My virginity is my pride, to whom I am willing, i give
Violate my body, get my wrath extravagant
Violate my body and my tears will flow like gushing streams down my cheeks
The offender surely will produce streams of tears forever

I am an African child not a sex toy
Let me walk freely the dark lonely streets of Africa
Let my body be adored and cherished
Let my dreams be nurtured to maturity
I am an African child, the joy  womanhood
