There's a passion burning deep within me.
Telling me to fight against oppression
My spirit is growling.
Cursing the systems which have been put in place to disenfranchise the African race
A roar is bubbling in my soul
a roar so mighty that it will shake the earth to its core
markers of civilization
built upon the blood sweat and tears of the African slave
in this foreign land.
I want to shout out against inhumanity
the glass ceiling.
The spirit of my ancestors is now awake within me
crying out for justice
and it will not be tamed
it will not be pacified
My spirit is now chanting
chanting for the release of our people!
For we are still not yet free...
Slavery might have been abolished but its consequences can be seen throughout time
defining our lives
There is a roar bubbling inside my soul
a lioness' roar!
an empress' roar!
will never stop fighting for my freedom
Roar on lioness.......A powerful piece of writingReplyDelete
Interesting post ... I like your Afrocentric passion and the strength of your character. I believe the systematic marginalization of Africans across the world has long been established as fact. Not too many people will be able to build a credible argument to the contrary of the above. the real challenge however lies in establishing a credible solution to the African question. We are so disillusioned and shocked by events of the past centuries that so we have not been able to break out of the system that continuously told us that we are a lesser people. We must challenge and confront this system that says lighter is better, we must see ourselves as a single nation and understand that our survival is contingent on our ability to break out of the conventional script.ReplyDelete
