As the rain fell and the sun scorched
my heart pounded as I hear the beat of the gong
It was like a trance, a trance it is!
I scooped a handful of sand from the earth
and pain filled my soul
tears flogged my eyes.
I hear the ancestors speak
they spoke of their regrets
Their sorrow and lost hope.
Above the earth, we live
Below the earth, the ancestors speak.
They spoke about what needs to be done
The actions they failed to take
They advocate for one more chance
The chance that can never be granted
The chance to make things right!
I shed tears of blood as I watch foeti plead
They pleaded with placards
“We are not going to Africa”
Even the creator considered their plea for a moment.
The dead and the unborn searched for the one
They look far and beyond among those that live
The only glimpse of hope they find
Is Neo Black Movement of Africa.
“We are the peace the dead finds”
“We are the hope of those that live”
“We are the future of the Unborn.”
We can be the peace, hope and future
Of the dead, the living and the unborn
If we would overcome our fears
And become who we truly are.
We are the hope of the Black Race
The custodian of our heritage
The voice of the oppressed.
We must advocate and go beyond advocacy
We must take actions steered towards
Excellence and Leadership
We must become leaders in every sector of the government
We must become leaders and Role models in our societies
We must kill greed and selfishness
We must build strong characters
that will withstand the temptations
and challenges of our time.
“We must become who we truly are.”
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child,
I understood as a child, I thought as a child;
But when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
