Pregnancies of the Mind

Pregnancies of the Mind

I am Africa

Eternally pregnant with endless possibilities

We are the minkisi of hope, of endurance

And of flowing rivers of our lands

We rise to receive baptismals

Of life from horns of animals

That freely roam our land

Free as the wind until poachers arrive

They poached us for centuries

Our bodies walk free now,

Our minds still perform

Monkey tricks for the master

We shall give birth under a bridge

As torrential rains of hope fall!
