A Mind Infinite

Infinity: The Views of a Dreamer

Mama Africa

Can’t you see,
you’ve sewn hatred in all the lands you’ve touched?
Dividing people into sets,
in order to hold onto your power?
Besetting the ghetto mentality,
into the youth who sprung from your damnation
Viewing the other as unequal,
different than from himself
From Rwanda,
turning Tutsis and Hutus against the other
No accountability for what you’ve done,
instead looking at the population as savage
The French unashamed of their colonial lies,
turning brother against brother
Continuing the history into neo-colonial times,
fanning the same flames they’ve sparked
The denial goes on and on,
the ultimate insult empowering the same racist views
Can’t you see no matter,
how you attempt to hold Mama Africa down
She’ll arise proudly from the soil inevitably?
With all of Africa in unity
Honoring her soil and resources,
brother and brother walking together down the path of unity
