the mission - Cosmas Mairosi

liberate africa!
amalgamate africa!
civilise africa!

your voice boomed
echoes pervading oppressed africa

the walls of colonialism crumbled
you authored a new dawn for africa

liberate africa!
amalgamate africa!
civilise africa!

the voice echoes in our hearts
we still cherish the dream nkrumah

but the bullet still speaks louder than the ballot
the blood of kinsmen continue to stain our hands

more of us have seen the light
your song shall never die on our lips

liberate africa!
amalgamate africa!
civilise africa!



"the mission" is part three of our four-part series of poems on Kwame Nkrumah. Our final installment will be posted next week.
