(HARARE, Zimbabwe / 9 july 1991)


Hear the trumpets of the wise,
The time is now,
Within our heads are not pieces of flesh,
Within our heads are ideas,
Ideas to give a hand to the need,
Ideas to give life to the lifeless,
Ideas to make our country a better place,
If you can see like l see,
If you can feel like l feel,
If you can care like l care,
Arise and stand with me,
This is the time,
Yourself, myself our country

The hour has come,
Wake up and arise,
The voice of the voiceless,
We are the generation,
Born to make it happen,
Born to make a change,
Together we can bring justice to life,
Eliminating crime,
with one voice, clamoring for peace,
For a change,
Destroying hatred, uniting all nations,
We are the generation,
Born to make a change,
If you are out there shout along with me,
Shout with a vociferous outcry,
Louder than the silent killer,
Louder than the sonic bang,
Shouting for a better change,
Shouting for a better future,
Shout along with me if you are out there,
We are the generation,

Oh hear now the drumming of the excited,
It has arrived,
The time to celebrate our greatness,
Rejoice in your gladness,
Our hard toil recognised,
Our vivid imagination regarded,
Our day as poets,
Our day to be us,
Our day for Poems

Speak forth, these words,
These words that birth these worlds,
These worlds that assume choral obit dancing about the sun,
In cosmic revolutions in an universe of consciousness,
Speak forth these words that birth these celestial bodies that we are,
For we are these worlds that earth these seeds,
These seeds of truth that bore the clarity,
This clarity that lead us not into democratic fallacy,
But shall deliver us from the cramping limits of traditional biasis and prejudices,
So that ours is freedom the influence and the voice forever and ever,
All rights are reserved,
All values are preserved by these words which l the poet shall recite yes,
These words which we, the GENERATION shall speak in due declaration and statement of purpose speak forth such words
