African woman


Help me see

the truth

life or death

for you


Woman of Africa

Africa kills men

of no hope

Children of the future

are scorned by killing

and raping of women

and the land

and sorrow

that will not rest

That I cannot find


Help me find peace

Not just a UN word

Or promises of life and love

that do not exist

But exist I do


Do you know

What it is like

to walk alone

in a world of disease and shame


To the woman who bore me

Me the bastard of lust and AIDS

Four letter words

That seek revenge

for my lusting mother

The woman of Africa
