My Original Abstract Art “Tears on Cheek of Africa”

The love with lands surrounded by
the Mediterranean sea to north,
Sinai Peninsula keeps a house with whom?
Suez and red having room. Forest and her ancient folk
always in our feelings and talk,
All the mankind having so curious
You,more I think mysterious. Beauty of her smile peeking, a truth
I know the truth, the truth.
The photographer committing suicide
never conceding the painful sight. A monster throwing away foods
In the water, children of you
Crying crying for a grain.
The moribund acting his last sequence
Why? a vulture waiting, a question. I love you, consider mother of lions
Smile revealing a secret, oh Africa!
