Mother Africa

By JustG

In the world of calamity and chaos

I stepped in the shadow of a crying child

I looked up

Strangled by the words that want to run free

I stood still

Looking at the bloodshed as our sisters pay the price for who they are in-love with

How many have to be slain before the Nation calls for divergence

Legislature permits but until we have changed the thinking of the children blooming in our wombs

We are not weary of the war

Today is a struggle

Yesterday was a struggle

Love should not be sized by what is in the pants


Hear the bloody cries of our sisters

Give us Solitude, peace and freedom


Teach us to love each other without judgement

Mother Africa we are a crying and bleeding nation in need of your comfort
