Treasure Island

Joyce Rwambali

(9/3/1996 / Tanzania)

what has happened


The black nation is dying
Everyone has dispersed
The sun has descended
Fear has covered the black nation
The black nation is dying
Along the way only humming is herd
Freedom is what they all long for
Terror swarms through the lands
The black nation has come to an end
Thoughts have changed, no love, no joy
All they know is that the black nation has ended
Freedom, freedom is the chatter heard
The black nation has come and gone
Entirely swept like how the vacuum collects dust
The animals have fled to the sense of danger
For now there is no hope of freedom
The black nation is now being restored
Independence is regained, freedom has shone
The children who fought no longer dwell in the dark
For darkness has descended
The black nation shouts ands and sings in joy
Freedom! Freedom! Freedom! The chant is heard again
The sun rises and falls in peace
The black nation has been saved

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
