Not all Africans are dark
I know you’ve heard the dogs bark
And watched tails wag in front of strangers,
Now your ears still hear their sound
And your heart is always scared
Now you fail to take a chase
Nor allow passion light up
The shadows of a heart
Not all heat can melt the nylon in a heart.
Not all men are alike
I know you granted entrance
To many or a few who got in and out.
And that’s the reason you prefer
To leave your inner you empty,
Listen to the words from the horse’s mouth.
Don’t remove the feathers from the wings of doves
Let love puppet and its frolics flutter
Towards your tender and empty space.
