african dilemma
if the hands that feed,harm. i bite? if the the hands that feed,harmed. i bite? african dilemma. is dignity to be sacrificed for crums of bread? is reasoning to be placed before dignity? life of a black man. such is the life we live. the hands have taken the mounth's belonging. today,the stomach is roaring , the body has weakened, the brain hallucinates. crums will not undo the already done. life of an african,african dilemma. with opened pores,dripped sweats, the end is nearing . end to the empty stomach, end to the faible body, end to the ineffective brain, end of this drama,the african dilemma. the beginning of dignity, the beginning of reasoning, the beginning of the dreams we all dare to dream.

This moved me Ikoli. You have so much dignity and obvious love of your country. You have a right to be mad.

Greed is a main reason why this world needs to be freed. Of every necessity there is an abundance, but the imperfect mind of fools withhold, so we continue to want in vain and gain only what's left behind by the unthankful. I enjoyed this.
