Ogoni: the spirit
i seek peace!
but in pursuit of peace i'm much aware of the fact that the quest for justice above all reign!
and so therefore i'm much aware too that peace and violence are only manifestations of what we breathe on one another as human beings! these are by-products!
what could the bible mean by God being just???
so today, i am here and i'm feeling the weight of the spirit of a people! Ogoni!!!
The toils, the sweat, the blood of a man Ken Saro Wiwa lives on! i feel it! i feel it like i feel the pulses in my veins...the breath of a people!
no matter how deep deep down the belly of the ocean they try foolishly too, to bury the truth, Justice will germinate!
and let my words cut like a sword
for these are not my words
these are weapons that destroy in mass
the evil we inflict on our own skin!
these words would cut off your limbs
these words would dig into you like daggers
and rip you into pieces
they would hang you!
unless you be true to your brothers and sisters
these words would bury you!
Ogoni! the spirit!
a people would rise to the dawn of a new morn!
