No Anomaly

I have always believed that goodness is the aberration in humanity, not evil.
We use it to tell us false truths about Africa and civilisation
The drumming of a heart that beats with the same rhythm as yours?
'Freedom is a Constant Struggle'
A poetic contribution to Epigram's Anti-MicroAgressions campaign
A poem about what we fear, what we know, what we do
The struggles of Senghor are the struggles of Stokely, The troubles of Tubman are the troubles of Tambo
For life will dash us against the rocks. We will be bruised but we must not break.
Sometimes justice comes for those yet unborn, so that they never face the light...
What will we leave to our children but tales of dust and despair?
