    “ HONOR THY MOTHER”


    Mother is sad, the tears she sheds are filled with acid. . . . .
    Her ground has been raped, her gold & diamonds stolen. . .
    The hairs on her head were once lucious
    & healthy green, fully fillings her savanahs

    Now it has been replaced with famine, mass genocide, & bloodshed .
    The cheetah a predator, once roamed the grasslands & hide with arched backs within the shelter of the tall grasses.
    They patiently waited for a gazeal,
    a swift prey to gallop past.
    This is no secret but a fact in the circle of life.
    Mother Earth accepted this for she knew that everything is born naturally
    to die naturally.
    But now the hunter has become the hunted,
    The cheetah now must hide from poachers.
    Mother Weeps!!!

    In any creation myth of almost every ethnic culture that populated this earth people were fashioned from the clay of Mother.
    Mother’s rich blood that flowed through her ventricles and many veins
    nourished her childrens bodies.
    We gave them names such as the Nile River, Congo River, & Zambezi River.

    The knuckles of her hand grew up from out of the ground,
    Forming luscious tree tops that the giraffe feed from.
    The large African oak Tree has a wealth of knowledge.
    Some say if you ask them they can tell you of Gold Plated Chariots fashioned by Nubians or of the many prominent African Kings such as Sundiata.
    AFRICA is the name given to HER.
    365 we must “HONOR OUR MOTHER”
