To My Unborn Child

Faraway in an unknown Unknown distant land Land she sleeps And wake all alone All alone she lives Lives and waits Waits for me to come Waits for me to come Come take her to be mine. Every morning In that faraway Distant and unknown land She sings and sweeps Like the African Woman she is! ...Inside her Is my child Yet unborn... It is to you My unborn child That this address is to... ...My child Whenever, Wherever and Whichever Way you choose to come Into this world May you meet this as a gift From me to you!!! ...I am your father Pride you are to me See you not I may And see you I may But let it ring down in you That a pride to me You are... ...This world you are Coming into Is a ugly beautiful place A hopefully hopeless city A beautiful city With ugly villages Which houses men Of different varied intents And women Whose animalistic innerlings Are covered with glowing skins And ready made garments!!! ...I had done my part My part to bring you hither And leave for you A lot of deeds Both good and not too good Also bad and not too bad. I had done my part To bring you hither In the best vessel around! And grow will you In this truly wicked world To be nice and righteous Till you strive and strive To make it Better than you met it... Just like I Your father... ...You know me not My unborn child But my news you hear From that which is your carrier Of the too many bads That I did And of too few goods That by me are done. Struggle! Struggle!! My dear Unborn Child To better my deeds And better your lots For the betterment of the world!... ...Though it be cruel to you Fight to abrogate cruelity Though it be ugly to you Struggle to promote beauty Though it be a hell for you Endeavour to create a heaven in it. ...For the world Is always not what It seem to be And in it Nothing remains as it is For so long a time Like Mariama Ba's Long Letter!... ...So my dear child Learn from my story Avoid my pitfalls Use my strengths Understand my weaknesses And drink from my wisdom pot And it shall better you... ...For... You are My Unborn Child...
