I speak for my forefathers Poem by Doris Dzameshie


I alone shall speak for my forefathers
for it is my time to tell the world
their time is far gone
They shall not be forgotten
As their seeds are littered all over the world
From the ends of African to the beginnings of America
Yet, their time is far gone

I alone shall speak for my forefathers
To tell the world the truth
My time in here
They shall not be forgotten
As the everlasting word burned in their soul
carried them from ends of Notsie to the beginnings of Anloga
Yet, my time is here
