Silent and Present Africa – by Sikhe Camara

Silent and Present Africa by Sikhe Camara; 

Because I kept quiet
You think I have nothing to say
Because I do not look
You think that I have nothing more to see
Because I do not cry out
You think I no longer have anything in mind
Because I do not make any noise
You think that I am lifeless
Because I do not advance
You say I have no more steps
That I no longer have the will to make a step
And you even say that I can no longer hear
Because I do not react
By taking your Universe
By its broad and useless shoulders
And throwing it far away from me
From my world
I have so much to say
So so much to say…
