We Seek Refuge

We Seek Refuge

We come in plain hearts like a lamb
You stone the ‘innocence’ in us with a barb;
Piercing our bodies into pieces of shreds
And our heads mounting in heaven like birds
Because of the imp-like monster—hatred

We come to beg, we come to plead
‘Cause of this bounteous bleed.
We’re of colours, we’re blacks
We need each other, we’re dark
We are not monkeys like the said ‘white donkeys’

Let’s be one, let’s be Africa
Let it die, the ghastly massacre
For we are one and chum
We are not beast, we are born
We come to plead, but not to be burned

Why not share?
