I REMEMBER. By: Ordeezy.

I remember
Before the chains and bounds
Before the whips and cuts
Before our blood fed our grounds
Before the assaults that hurt.

I remember
Before the deceit and false trade
Before the strange religion that now reigns
Before the glittery gifts that looked tempting
Before the false peace they kept waving. 

I remember
The song of our fathers
Flowing like the waters from our mouths
Singing and dancing round the naked fire
With joy we couldn’t count.

I remember
Tales from the elders beneath the silent moon
Folktales we thought were true
Our mother’s lap where we shared our pain
Her comforting songs when she sang our name.

I remember
Oh! I remember.
Many has forgotten our ways.
