Mariam de Haan (04 October 1993 / Pemba, Tanzania)
In the memory of a man
For a man who showed Africa
Is not one with ignorance.
A man who shared the truth.
A man who respected heritage.
Rest in peace,
To a man who took the laments of his nation
And wrote them for the world to see.
May your name be written in Africa's soil,
Where you now sleep.
