A Colonised Mindset - Poem by Lihle Shezi

They said 'they will buy you Heaven'.
They said 'They will buy you God'.
Buy you a Prophet.
Buy you a new Earth.
Buy you a new Tradition.
Buy you a Constellation.
Buy you Gold.
Buy you a new Education.
Buy you a new Religion
Bleach your skin
Clear all your sins for having
A clean conscience.
Buy you medicine.
Buy you Freedom.
Buy you a new way of Life.
Buy you a new pair of parents.
New kins and grand parents.

They said they will buy you everything if only you would die for them.

And You did

And They didn't.
