We Have Been There - Poem by john chizoba vincent

WE HAVE BEEN THERE
We have been in the pit of hell
Where Water speaks of An enemy In the dark
A maskman is no masksman Unless he knows what to do at the right time of the day.
We have been there where we could not
See chair to sit down but we sit on the ground
To learn the art of selfish, envy, war and betrayer
With bible on our right hand and gun on the left
Answering the masters who owns our lives
And we perish not because we were one.

We have been there where smoke enters into
Our eyes and they revolt of our carelessness
We've fight the pigs on the white chairs
Many times have we clean our household
Which they thrown into daylight confusion.
We have been to school with no chairs to sit
The pastor has beat us many times in the
Presence of the congregation but we survived


We have been there where school
Children are sent home for fees
We Have been there where women
Deliver in pains and Agony.
We have seen so many perished
But Death never see us 'cause we were one

We've seen a father beat his wife
We've seen a child beat his father
And in turn becomes the fathe
We have been to the graveyard
Sent a wrong Signal to our hearts,

We've seen a lot to make our eyes
Go to our back and rest for the last meal
Yet a word wasn't enough for us men
To feast on at the clash of madness in us
Madness which exist in methods above our head

We have been there in pains struggling
We've seen death bark and curse, but
Never shake as though men with no courage
We've seen many air wept and the tears slamed
On our faces like a hot porriage on the head

Destiny made us who we are - kings
Love made us perfect and blameless
At the nakedness of the womanly earth
We hide our faces not to See our Mother'
Nakedness shinning like the moon

We never decieve our follow hunter
Those in the same journey with us
Yes- - we are the chosen ones
