Who Am I?

I am Swahili

I believe in praying five times a day.

I wonder if I will catch any fish for my family to eat or enough to sell at the market.

I see the deep harbors along the coast as I look out to the Indian Ocean.

I hear the KiSwahili language; a sweet mixture of Arabic and Bantu.

I am Swahili

I worry about my arranged marriage.

I celebrate Jamhuri Day and Madaraka Day to mark my countries independence.

I hope to visit the holy city of Mecca some day.

I sing a song of Taarab.

I am Swahili
