Nothing Was The Same

Poem By Sinclair Azubuike

For 500 years
They instilled in us fear
Aboard ships
They took us
Abused our women's hips
While some jumped over ship
During those horrendous trips
To a different world
Forcing us
To experience hell
Like objects
Our body's they would sell
From Africa we came
They made us become slaves
Raped us
In every way
Our names they changed
Can you imagine the pain?
After they drag us from the arms of our mother
Nothing was the same.

Born just to die
Thrust into trials and tribulations
Of an uphill struggle
We shall cry later, now we shall smile

The bogeyman
Has been got rid of
He doesn't hide in my closet
Because I refuse to let him in

Tonight the stars flickered & flickered

Behind a carefully painted on mask

drips tears of a jovial clown

One Day people will wake up
realise that they had fallen asleep
drifting into a nightmare
sleepwalking into a dark abyss

Tears pouring from my eyes
Those pieces of paper
You could see on the floor
