Mislaid Dreams Poem
The African dream is not lost, it is just mislaid.
It was hidden within brown people, being called black.
From then on, the rainbow disappeared from the sky.
The sun never appeared again, no explanations why?
From then on their presence was not worth living by.
They said because the world mother sunk down grieving,
now their future is as dark as the night sky.
It is told that their past still fall the presence apart.
The explanation is, two heads were separated to stand alone
And, they lost the community unification.
A buffalo dismantled from the pack is as vulnerable as them.
But like a herd, together again they must stand,
to rebuild the lost glory.
Their emancipation is a debt, they owe to their ancestors.
