An African Voice (POETRY)

in poetry •  2 years ago  (edited)

I HAVE HIDDEN AFRICA

I have tattooed Africa on my heart
your sharp eyes will never poke her

I have tattooed Africa on my heart
your poisonous spit will never touch her

I have tattooed Africa on my heart
your fancy shackles will miss her ankles

My heart is softer than my skin
It will sheath her better

I have hidden her
You will never find her
