Liberian poet, Abunic, writes against racial discrimination in very sharp lines. His solidarity with those who were murdered on the scaffold of racism is so glaring. We hope that you enjoy the read as much as we did here.
“What is dead may never die.”-Game Of Thrones
To the ferryman, you don’t pay the iron price.
You surrender, wholly.
Death is a mute/ at your many funerals
he speaks in flimsy voices.
You’re absent when your eulogy is read
Someone tapped their screen, &
you was alive again.
i can’t breathe, hashtag.
No! you was alive again. in their screams,
burning in the flames.
We buried you once. you was cold & black like the night.
black lives matter, hashtag.
When you’re breathing again
in the skin of another black man.
Remember, on Pyke/
your crime is not being black, it’s bleeding red.
How dare you!

If you go out everyday, with the consciousness that you could be living out a portion of your bestseller book, you will be immune to the popular writers' bloc
Whether you're having a good day or not, don't let any part of your day go unnoticed. Someday, you will need to create a dialogue similar to your conversation with that street hawker or fuel attendant who you absentmindedly transacted with. Pay attention!

My #childhood did not see the luxury of toys and dolls but it was colorful. The excitement of running after butterflies in my mother’s backyard garden where she grew melon and vegetables is indelibly registered in my mind.
