Press Fast Forward

All my life as far as I can remember, I have been made promises to, now I can't tell a promise from a fable. - unNaked Soul

I won't be able to post, for now, the PPA for other bloggers as promised. I am afraid I have to sign off blogger for a while. I have lost complete track of who I am. Who am I? I can't even say in a very honest sentence. What do I want? I have to seat back, figure that out, and set my priorities right.

If I don't come back, know that I do very well appreciate every single individual I have virtually known through this medium. May it be as you wish... be well.

unNakedly Yours

The Excessive Romanticism of the Continent



Every nation falls the first time

And after falling many falls again

Even today when we should learn

We fall instead, we fail instead

We falter at every step



Today we ponder and

It is impossible to tell

How Africa would have turned out

With or without slavery and colonialism



"I have no future."

That is what they think

And who is to blame them

When the people came at you

Others of other ethnicity

Coming for your head

The fashion to blame slavery and colonialism

Considering also the history of the continent

Now I ask…for which of these you do

Condemn our country people?



Like Rwanda , every nation falls the first time

And after falling they will fall again

Each has its fair share of historical-unavoidable

Even today when they should learn

They fall instead, they fail instead

Like Africa uncertain at every step



Look at the vision of one privileged right

A right to kill or be killed

Choose they say’ or you fall.

It is too much to take

Considering the fate of other African

Black peoples in other continents

Who believe that the time to move on

has long gone out of our hand



Look at the people’s vision of the future

The blacks still in Africa

The staring faces born of fear

The scorning laughs of other nation

Looking at them involves a tremendously delay

A setback toward sorrow

For a continent that once caused

The days of Massa slavery



I can write of the detail, burned, and dissolved,

And broken off in poetic flight

Lest we forget this is an accusing poetry

Words that gets its energy from all

the suppressed memory

of ethnic racism in African history



The article below inspired this poetry



“Almost forty years after most African countries gained independence, the continent continues to have a striking resemblance to the Africa of the 18th and 19th century. Any wonder then that some commentators have insinuated that the continent was better off colonized. Indeed, in one country after another, the conditions are similar --similarities that are manifested in low quality of life. In virtually every country, the average African has been betrayed by the intellectual class, the military cadre, and by the civil society (selling out to the oligarchy and to foreign agents).

For Africa to advance, certain unorthodox steps have to be taken. The suggestions here can be improved upon. However, one must take into consideration the fact that for more than forty years, all types of paradigms and approaches have been rendered and tried to no avail. It is time to think and act unconventionally. Trepidation will not help. Fear will not help. Dithering will not help. And neither will the little-little things. It is time to be bold. It is time to think of our countries as ours, to think of our continent as ours -- as our personal domain.” (Sabidde@gmail.com, Howard University , Washington DC ,)
