African Prayer

It was very far indeed, decades past,
Oh! our forefathers cried for help, help against suppression,
inhuman treatment and against pretentious posture in the name of a religion.
Help eluded them and their younger generations afterwards.
It later came with pretense on its face.
It came without sincerity.
Our younger fathers danced to the same tune of music played to their forebearers.
Genuine help was murdered in their hearts long time ago.
Think Africa! Must you continously cry for hel

[Hata Bildir]
