Poetic Piece: FREEDOM: Odame Asare Godfred (Anglican SHS, Kumasi)

FREEDOM

The sound of a gun shot made me panic
My heart was filled with fear that moment
I turned around only to see young people lying dead on the street
The street was soaked with the blood of innocent black people
Others tortured by dogs and thrown into filthy-smelly dungeons one after the other
Why wouldn’t the white man let us have our freedom
Why is he oppressing and torturing us in our call for freedom
The church bells are ringing,sirens are horning
Protestants are now fed up with the brutal murdering of innocent black men,women and children
Why should we allow the white man to spit on us
Why must we go through these in our call for freedom
Rise up my fellow black people
We shouldn’t let the whites stop us in our call for freedom
Pick up your swords and follow me noble men and women of Africa
The time for our freedom is now
