if we must die..

claude mckay,
warrior by my side on this battlefield,
ur words encourage and bolster me
for if we must die,
it shall not be like dogs.. like slaves..
if we must die,
it shall not be like hogs in the slaughter house
but like ethiopians on the battlefield
our last breath livicated to liberty
to reconstruction of our destiny
if we must die,
then we shall die as patriots
so our sons and daughters travel home in charriots
if we must die,
we shall die a death to be written in the annals
to be studied and honoured by our decendants
if we must die,
should this be our last instant..
then let this moment spark resistance,
the time of our demise ,
must come only at the price to revolutionise
if we must die,
then let us die as Malcolm died,
as Marcus, Nkrumah and Lumumba died..
if we must die,
then let us nobly die..
for in submission to the oppressors,
we leave our souls to die..

...if we must die..
let us die for Afrika.


History has shown that it is the inaction of those who could’ve acted; the indifference of those who should’ve known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most that has made it possible for evil to triumph. - EMPEROR HAILE SELASSIE I

if we must die
let it be for Africa.

wise man said,
that it shall not be like dogs but as men
whose last moment was to spark a new justice
not as slaves
but as the fathers of lords


if we must die
let it be for the unborn son who lived
because a daughter lived because we died
if we must die
should this be our last intant
then let a new justice stand served
a worthy cause answered

wise father
let it be said that they died
as marcus died
as nkruuma and bicko died
that the price of our pain
was so our descendant's rode home in charriots
if we must die
let us nobly die..

for when we give up a cause for living
that's when we start to die


We look neither left nor right, but forward.

it is better dying fighting than dying on your own two knees by emiliano zapata,

  from rio to new york
 to la, to toronto
 it is the same story,
 our pain and history
is no fable of glory,
 unmarked graves
 tombs without names,
 i say,die mothercuckers die,
every white person in this worldwide planet should  have a bullet on their head
because if we dont...
they rather  have and see us dead!
