I Cannot - Poem by Frederick Kambemba Yamusangie

I cannot give up my soul…
That’s what makes me
Who I am

I cannot give up my dignity…
That’s what makes me
Get my respect from

I cannot give up my mind…
That’s what gives me bearings
And balance in my life


I can give up my money…
This is a human creation
This is a fictitious entity.
