We are Africans
by
Golden Gadzirayi Nyambuya

For over 400 years our gentle soul has known no peace,
All ill-things that can be said about a human being,
Have all been said about us, hopeless, good for nothing etc.
All horrific deeds that can be performed on a human-being,
Have been performed on us -- by who, need I say.
All this because we gave an exogenous voice a chance to speak into ourlife.
Whatever they may say, we are Africans and none can change that.
We are born out of the mineral rich soil of Africa,
The very minerals that they fight for and subdue our souls to inhuman suffering.
We are raising from the shambles of poverty to claim our rightful place.
To those that think otherwise, may their earth-hungry souls rest in eternal peace.
We shall solve our problems all by ourself and let no one dare think otherwise.
Bush, Brown et. al., I say to the nearest hell is your home.
We are the proud descendants of the human cargo that was sold to build the empire state.
We are the descendants of those that died in the battle field in defense of the motherland.
We are the inhabiters of the blessed land Africa that has defended the spirit of humanity.
We brought democracy and sanity to the world,
And now they think they can lecture us on this -- oh sorry man.
We are none-arrogant but very proud Africans of the first order and of the first kind.
You can take us out of Africa but you can never take Africa out of us,
We are Africans and our every bit of our heart beats with Africa.
Never and never again shall we surrender our divine right to determine our destiny,
Never and never ever shall this ever happen again.
 If our destiny is hell so be it, we shall captain our ship to hell then.
But the Good Lord Promised us freedom, joy and happiness here on Earth,
We believe and shall not buy into the ill-fated journey by imperialist earth mongers,
We are Africans, very proud Africans do not forget that,
As Tata Mandela once said from his long walk to freedom -- Mayibuye i-Africa!
Let no one dare say or think otherwise,
We are Africans!

...Africa's glory
tells the story-
of who we are.
No lies can dim the sun
which made us hue-man/woman...

 we are afrikans
from astrologers
to mathematicians
builders of temples and shrines
from the olmecs of muur land

 we build civilazations
now what we see,is ruins of empire,
 tormented  souls,
seeking their places
bodies frozen in time and place
lyin on the botton of ocean floors,
the ongoni giant,kem sara wiwa
described when things fall apart
when afrikans sell demselves for oil and gas.

we shall rise again,
the pentacle of our civilazation.
we need to work towards our mental and spiritual emancipation.
