Best Poem of Ryan Sanders

To You, Africa

You are a beautiful terra firma
With beautiful people
Rich in history
Rich in prosperity

You are a land of life hard lived
Through droughts and famines
Your people had a lot to give

Your villages were of close community
Unlike that of civilization
You were the best example
that the world could have seen

Then the toubob began to arrive
And your people were taken
With no regard for your childrens lives
I know you are still shaken

Taken from the land they loved
Shoving their beloved Earth into their mouth
For one last taste of ...

Read the full of To You, Africa

The Impoverished

Your eyelids are a nest for flies
You fight for your food
You walk in excrement filled streetways
Also known as your home
Neglected by the powers that be
Simply because they can
Simply because there is money to be made
We are both told of peace and prosperity
I know they are all lies
