Speak - Poem by Anesu Kanengoni

Speak my name
Say it like it’s the last drop of water in an endless ocean
Declare it like the proclamation of faith,
bolstered on the hips of mothers around the world
Say it like the rapture
come to collect the chosen
Say it from deep within your gut
with passion and verve
Feel it welling up from your bones
A storm thrashing at the steel bars of cages
Let it flow from your body
An endless river unabated
Unkempt
Hot like lava
Flows
Hot like lava
Runs
Hot like Lava
Speak it like the name of a nemesis
Spit it out of your mouth with bitter regard
Despite all it represents
To spite all it’s meaning
Strike it from your lips like an evil borne of love
SPEAK!
Let it flow out
SPEAK!
Let it flow out
SPEAK! Love
SPEAK! Power
SPEAK! Rage
SPEAK! Truth
