To the New Me

Posted October 11, 2019

I was 21 years of age, When I discovered I had been living in a dark age. I tried so hard to get my mind out of that cage, Yet was bundled and confined to my village, With no roof over my ridiculed luggage. I sought for answers yet was told it runs in my lineage. They said I was young and only a woman; to intervene was a sacrilege.  As if calculated vengeance even made me feel better, but stirred up rage.

Just then, I realized it was time I flip over and start a new page. Sounded by untainted love, even when I can no longer farm the soil that swallowed my sister's wage. Worded by mutual forgiveness, even when my brother's blood wails for vengeance in rage. Phrased by indiscriminate kindness, even when my marrows are scattered and my articulatory organs can no longer produce language. Sentenced by genuine communalism, even when heads are sent rolling and no one notices the damage.

I hold firm my pen this day while I write this new page. Summing the violent ignorant past into a garbage. Which threw my life out of course, as it was not arrested by knowledge. Amazingly I didnt learn this in college. As I bring forth this one message, the world must hear my new language. Though the oceans rage and war against our souls the devil may wage, We should never again give ignorance the chance to make our lives a savage. And as Mandela, even if we walk through the door to our freedom and peace, we would still be in prison if we do not lay off hearty bitterness and hate.

Hello my dearest,
This a beautiful article you just posted. And you know what, you are brilliant and skillful writer.
You got a great talent. And true I agree with you very much on the point Mandela made.

It very practical and we got be forgiving towards one another. At times we might want to take things in our own hands and revenge ourselves. But come to think of it is not worthy at all. Let's leave to God to always intervene in our behalf. When we do that we will surely find God's favor.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
Warm regards
