THE SILENCE OF THE NON-AFRICAN AND OF HIS KIND
Requires Modules of portraying, The Epic Moments in terms of
THE PAST; PRESENT; FUTURE… ETC, in ORDER TO BE FULLY REALIZED BY THE UNKNOWN AFRICAN AND HIS KIND. Techniques are needed of reconciling, the delicacy of the miniature, and the boldness of the vast panoramic view. To succeed… will be BREATHTAKING ACCOMPLISHMENT.
THE UNKNOWN AFRICAN
It’s claimed that the Unknown African,
Has not achieved the political maturity
That would make, the task of granting the Unknown African,
Self-governance over his own affairs and his kind,
Possible or easy. The Unknown African is supposed to be simple,
With only rudimentary political views.
Despite, indeed noble concept i.e. STATESMAN-LIKE,
Which anyone would be proud of, fitting end?
To glorious chapters in Non-African Centuries
Or decades of imperialism, Fascism; Nazism; communism… history
THE NON-AFRICAN has everything to LOOSE and NOTHING to GAIN by releasing the STEEL GRIP which the non-African has on the Unknown African.
The non-African hides behind the short skirts of such EMOTIONAL FEELINGS for example, heartrending cries for emancipation of the Unknown African and of His Kind do SOUND HOLLOW IN RETROSPECT, as one watches
THE SCRAMBLE FOR POWER; listen to the SQUABBLES; Hearing open admission of being part of a SCHEME TO PROVE that it is not WORKABLE; Moreover, the non-African, ALONE, has best interests of the Unknown African at HEART.
THE POSSESSION OF GOOD AND EVIL
It would seem that good and evil were still in,
The RELATIONSHIPS between the,
Non-African and the Unknown African.
Some of the finest relationships,
Tested through times, Might betray their ESSENCE at the Tiniest of tensions, and then they tend to reveal, themselves, having not, what it takes to be durable. One ought to be AWARE that Even ROUGH and PRIMITIVE RELATIONSHIP HARACTERISTICS OF GOOD and EVIL.
(However much one wishes that it ought to be composed of only GOOD).
It’s worthwhile to bear in mind, the presence of EVIL, Is an ever going on process,
This is a CAUSE ENOUGH to raise tension, in all sorts of relationships. One reflecting to oneself, on a serious note, Would agree and give a gentle approval of the above logic. To be continued…………………
