I Have a Dream - Ezra Chitando

Written by Ezra Chitando in Maputo on 8th December 2008, during the 9th General Assembly of the All Africa Council of Churches

I dream of a world
Where men respect women
Where men protect children
Where men promote life
 
I have this vision of another world
A world that exudes the following qualities:
Justice
Peace
Compassion
 
I yearn for a world
Where men are strong enough to care
Tender enough to love
Loving enough to protect
 
I have glimpses of another world
Faithful men
Caring men
Sensitive men
 
Dear God, work with us to bring this world
Dear Men, let us work to bring this world
Dear Women, let us work to bring this world
Dear Men: Are we man enough
To embrace this dream & world?
