THEY SAY OUR SKIN IS DARK

The say our skin is dark
Dark as devil's heart
Doped from a blackness night.

But they lied as whited sepulchre

They say our country is cursed
The black continent doomed
As wasted as earthen soots
Cascading the flooding virtues

But they lied as thick opaque

They say our mind is the devil
Our thoughts serrating evil plots
And our human gene blackened
As darkened as mined earthenware

But they lied as mother of slaves.

They say our skin is dark
"But wait a minute..." I said to them.
" May be you should see the beautiful sole of my feet.
" May be you should see the colour of my palm.
" May be you should touch the fleshy tongues of all black race.
And there was thirty minutes silence.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
