~~AFrICa CrIEs~~

~Prologue~

A depiction of the long legacy of misconception and travesty and pains of a nation...


~THE FACE OF HUMANITY~
~THE FACE OF HUMANITY~

~AFrICa CrIEs~

Out of the trenches baring dust and glory, creases in their faces tell their story

weighted in time over long rough terrain, altered history, their souls and their names

shackled, beatten, clustered in rage, feeble, weakend, blood drippin on every page

our song of history cries out in pain, Africa! Africa! I know not even my name, the cradle of civilization foreign to me, it to bares the weight of history

stollen and bombarded from years of captivity, shall I long for a country I have never seen, cry out in agony at my own distand dreams

can I grace the land, toil the see, emerge upon the rocks with an echoe of glee, this home called Africa is ancient to me, its blood stained tears leak into humanity

children abandoned on the road to eternity, their soulful cries speak volumns of plea, flushing out their brittle bones upon the sea, painful, agonizing, destructive poverty

human remains left for the world to grieve, our forefathers spirits acke abominably at the onslaught of what Africa breeds

my soul is boundless without harmony at the stolen glimpses of these notrocities, I can read all day and on through the night, will that change the lonsome plight

diminish the tragedy of a clear and present desease or will it just make my heart bleede from watching this destruction unfold before me

witches and wizards in the souls of our young, what a hateful deadly illusion, driving nails into their skulls, pouring acid upon their little hull, burning, maiming, burying them alive, inconceivable demise

should I jump for joy to journey there, only to watch children suffer in despair, my soul abandoned to this misery, my tears monumental in the bell of catastrophy

the depth of my consciousness cries out in agony, I no longer babble about my own vicious memories, these children have suffered far greater tragedies
