ATONEMENT

I am a young African hoping to change the white man's grave narrative for good.

FIRST VOYAGE


I see them in suits and ties not leaving cufflinks.
I hear them with their queen English and pert diction.
I taste their Lebanese dish and owanbe dishes.
I have done all that is needed to join this prestige.

Who doesn't want to be in the league of such men.
Secluded away from the stains of poverty.
Who doesn't want to be known as the cash-owner.

LAST VOYAGE

Now I am. Now I regret. If I had known.
They are nothing more than wolves in sheep's clothing.
They plan evil and call the innocent evil.
They suck the blood of the simple and call it "just a mishap"

As I get out I would make an atonement.
I would Share the joy earth cannot buy.
The love of CHRIST.

WE ALL HAVE evil TO FIGHT.

DON'T BE BELITTLED

WIN!
