Unbearable Pain - Poem by Felix Onyango

The spear has hit my chest.
I am bleeding from every part of my body
My children are suffering
While some of them rejoice
Others do not know what to do
When will they know that diversity does not work?

Every part of my body aches
My body joints are breaking slowly
There is no doctor to look after me
Only my children can heal my wounds.
But how can they if they cannot hear my pleas.
If only there was one of them who was concerned about me.

Can somebody dress my wounds?
Before I bleed to death.
Can somebody please make my children speak one language?
Their existence is special to me
And so is their relationship of peace, love and unity.
