AFRICA NEEDS A “SANCTICA”

Illuminated

She stands in crepuscular

Knowing not her next

 

Would the next be day?

Would it be absolute night?

She stands scared waiting

 

One would be tempted

To think her light would stand out

Blinding grave darkness

 

But no, only she

Sees her light as the others

Grope for their mere path

 

‘A’ is standing tall

‘frica’ is having the fall

And none seems to call

 

Scary weather whips

Scary diseases leads ship

Beyond eye boarders

 

Scary captains ride

Armoured to fight the hot sea

With deserting thoughts

 

What will beauty do?

Africa needs a “sanctica”

A “sanctica” to revive.

  1. We all feel the pain even though you are at its centre. The indecisiviness is felt by those of us who understand the pains of life. It’s tears are in all of our eyes. We as people must stand together not be divided by the sea but hold each other’s hand till the storm dies and we can all rest in peace.
