    They say she gave birth
    to the first people who walked this earth
    africa is our mother
    so whether you are on the continent or in the diaspora
    that makes us brothers
    we were divided by fake borders created by colonial orders
    submerging into tribes even though we look alike
    it is time to recognise
    who you are and understand there is no difference
    between Hutu and Tutsi
    broad noses big lips wide hips
    take your pick we are diverse
    but deserve to take our place on this earth
    but this will only happen when we know our worth

    You speak volumes of Maat here, straight from the belly of her did we come. As it was in the beginning...so shall it be in the end.
    They tried/trying to beat us down...
    but still...we RISE!

    The message is so true, once we realize how special we all are, we won't feel as much of a need to bring down, and more of a need to uplift. ^5 on this poet.
