The Awakening - Poem by Addy Adenawo

From what womb did this fruit emerge?
When did you open your eyes?
To gaze upon the purge
that ravaged these lands

You are - a relic of an ancient time,
pulled from your source
Forced to endure the crime and
desecrated on cold museum walls

You should be breathing the earth,
free from Man's greedy claws
Roam the place of your birth
without fear of his laws

Take back your pride
Ye sons of the wild
