THE BLACK SPIRIT

Written by: Victoria Nunoo

Tales of the untold
Legends that are not chronicled
In the absence of the aged
Leaves a slot for the animated
Cowards in the quest
To conquer weakness
Are left in the seat of mockery
The smirk of the scorner
We refuse to be tamed
We are free spirited beings
A special mould from that kind of dust
The strength is in our staff
Spirit of the force
The black spirit!
We are the strongest
The natural order of life
Mother said so…
Our voices in unison
Calls out behind those hills 
We fear nothing
Come forth, deal with us
We slay with passion
And heal with zeal
We speak the truth
We have the truth
Our common language
Love for brothers
Love for the world
We are who we are 
We are Africans!
