OUR UNTOLD POEM

Written by: KINGSLEY ANTWI

I BELIEVE EVERY WORD WE WROTE WILL FILL EVERY SPACE IN THEIR THOUGHTS
IT TOOK A LOT OF COURAGE TO MAKE OUR PENS BLEED
LIFE IN HIS OWN RIGHT HAS BEEN CRUEL TO US LIKE MOTHERS WHO WILL VIOLENTLY 
DENY THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS THE MILK IN THEIR BREASTS
OUR TEARS WERE ENDLESS
OUR FAITHS BECAME HOPELESS
OUR FATHERS WOULDN'T BLESS US WITH THEIR LAST NAMES BECAUSE THEY SAID WE 
ACTED BASTARDLY
EVEN IN TORN CLOTHES, THERE WERE NO MERCIES FOR OUR POOR SOULS
WE JOIN HANDS STEADILY IN PRAYERS BECAUSE THAT WAS ONLY WAY TO FIGHT WHAT 
WAS UNSEEN
ALONG THE WAY WE LOST BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO SCARIFIED THEIR BREATH TO 
MAKE US WIDEN THE BREADTH BETWEEN FAILURE AND SUCCESS
THEY WEREN'T OUR BLOOD TIES BUT THEY WERE MORE THAN THE HYPOCRITES WE HAD
THEIR LEGACIES FOREVER LIVES IN OUR HEARTS, SO TODAY WE BOW TO THE FALLEN 
SOULS
TODAY WE PROVE ALL SKEPTICS WRONG WITH OUR EGOS BECAUSE WE LIVING LIKE 
HEROES WHO WERE NEVER CAST DOWN IN GROUND ZERO
MORE EMPHATICALLY WE ARE THE FACT THEY ARE HOLDING ON TO BECAUSE THEIR 
THOUGHTS ARE SINKING THEM
