Is Ghana your passion?

Seek truth, peace and justice

Make them your fashion

Not to engage in tribalism or factions

Every true Ghanaian has compassion

Idle talk has its cost

But truth liberates and elevates if you are lost

Weigh your diction, be savvy with self restraint

A true and civilized Ghanaian seeks progress

Gird on your armour and not undress

Your ignorant nakedness in ghanaweb congress

Shame on you if you regress

People from China are Chinese

Are people from Ghana Ghanese?

True identity marks you out a Ghanaian

A vulture cannot be an eagle or vice versa

You are an eagle, an eagle, an eagle………..

And Ghanaian eagle forever you shall be

You were programmed to soar high above all

When duty calls, to Ghana give your all

Face challenges and turn them into opportunities

Don’t be embittered and be filled with gall

To basics go learn ancient wisdom,

Ananse fables and local lore
