Remember The Old Times - Poem by Kondwani Simwaba
Remember the old times
There will be times that change these times; times, that will challenge these times, times when youths with fancy watches cannot tell when it's their time, time; these times will come with time, time unlike these times of socializing only on social media yet reality regards us anti-social, time; times like the times of the old that when I was there, then I was really there not these times that when I am here then I am actually there, times; there will be times, times that will cleanse these times, times; that will make us realize who we really are, Africans! Are we really in our actions? We haven't embraced our melanin.
Times, there were times, times when we really connected with each other, times; time is the healer of all wounds, so why do we still hold on to our slavery mentality? Times; I miss those times, times when my people shouted Cha Cha Cha! Because we cannot live like we cannot see what is happening; the News is propagated by propaganda, the same propaganda that propagated the Genocide in Rwanda, cuz who needs firefighters when man's not hot?
There will be times that change these times; times, that will challenge these times, times when youths with fancy watches cannot tell when it's their time to be heard; Talent, must never be dead because we are but young leaders to live in cowardice and misplaced identities, so if you do not know who you are in these times, then I suggest that you visit the old times…
