A Part of this World

In that part of the land were people do not socialise
In the land were you don’t even exchange a simple greeting
In faraway lands
Where you don’t ask the other about the weather
The family and the kids
Were you don’t ask about the harvests and the imminent drought
It is a world where each man is for himself
In such a world you are on your own
It is a conservative society
In this part of the world….

In a land where you feel you are the only people of colour
In that land were someone with a skin pigment close to yours becomes a close brother
Close sister

In a world where there is no social life
In this part of the world
You are even afraid of asking for directions
It is a world where you have to visit when you are invited
Unlike in that world were you may just pass by
And pretend you are not hungry
In a world where you are easily offered food
In a world where you pretend your stomach is full
Yet in actual fact you will be hungry
It is so different in this part of the world

Different worlds indeed
In this part of the world
You sit on the same seat in the bus
Train
Without greeting each other

In a world where you will pretend to enjoy sipping wine
Not that you like it
In a world where you will try hard to learn to like coffee
Not out of interest
But just to fit in the society
In a world like this……
In part of this world

It is different from the other part of the world

I hear,feel and i can touch…

The love of  Africa’s motherhood

A part of the world

Where a child is Everyone’s child

A world where it takes….

The whole community to raise a Child
