Oh Mama!!!!

I weep for us,

Ours is a bloodline

That is rooted in pains,

And a race

That has lost its place,

And culture

In the good books

of civilization…………..

Oh mama!!!!!

I weep for you,

Because the new day

Refused to dawn

At the horizons

Of Kilimanjaro

Mama!!!!!

Your back was broken

And beaten

Of course,

You were treated as nothing,

But a subject

And a “TRANSPORTABLE MERCHANDISE”,

bounded

In chains and shackles

To till a foreign soil………………..

Oh mama!!!!

Ours is a history

Rooted in shame and laden

With many flaws,

We have suffered

The worst horrors

Under the terrors

Of a foreign reign……….

Oh Mama!!!!

When shall you awake

From this slumber

You have fallen into?

Your children are basking

In the fetters

Of their past

And enslaved

In the chains

Of a false freedom…………..

Oh Mama!!!!

Your progeny are dying

In the poverty of ignorance,

And lacking in the midst

Of your abundance

Mama!!!!!

I sit at

The banks of the Nile

Chirping like a canary

To the tunes of this sad tale………….

Ours is a race

That is lost,

A fallen iroko

That was captured

And bundled like a log

Aboard the Galleons

Of slavery……………….

Arise Mama Africa!!!!!!!!!

And fight like a lion

For your freedom

Arise Mama

And flaunt your beauty

For the world to see

Though you are root

Of an ugly past………….

Arise Mama Africa!!!!!

And save your dying face,

Arise and blossom

Like a cactus

In the dawn

Of the rising sun…………………
