One sky, One earth
The land is not just earth.
But one ploughed into existence.
As one removes each layerSweat,
dreams and streams will flow.
Wherever the war is
Our heart walls are hurt.
Whichever field is burning
Yours or your neighbour’s,
It is life that starves.
It is the earth’s womb that turns barren.
When can we ever build a dream
that all can see together..?
When can we all join in one prayer
Under the same tree…?
As birds fly beyond borders,
I dream of a nationality
Where I am not a foreigner,
A dream of a singular Nationality.
Never kill for sport.
Only to quench hunger.
Never give murderous calls.
Never touch their matesExcept in the season of love.
The rape of their offsprings.
Never rape their elders.
Never drink blood as wine.
For they are animals.
Not homo sapiens.
.My Africa. ——————
I am not an African,
But my heart beats with Africa’s.
And my soul is at home in Africa.
When Africa weeps for her children
My cheeks are stained with tears.
Beyond the mountains and valleys,
Beyond the sight of imagination
Stood endless black blake
Ofstreet and struggles of life.
Africa, her world is black.
Her eyes will never smile.
They are the survivors,
and the victims of every tragedy.
Their skin like black soil,
their tears are like black river.
They are beyond the description.
These people marked by color.
They are a broken race.
A race of slaves,a race of savages.
Africa calls to me
With the cry of eagles that frees my soul,
she lives in the world’s shadow,
But she is the land of tomorrow.
I am a soldier and a revolutionary,
And resistance against racial discrimination.
