Uninvited Guests...

Taiwo Ajuwon Poetry Sep 07, 2017

They came
They took our land…our lives
They took our inheritance…our heritage
They took our culture…our tradition
They took our history…our identity

They came
They taught us their ways…tearing us away from ours
They gave us their language…as heritage
They gave us their education…as goals
They gave us a new name…as identity

Uninvited they came
Taking as they please…killing as they wish
Prancing around like owners…their skin so white
Passing judgment on the owners…their hearts so dark

Our empires fell
Our worlds crumbled…
They gave us their world…
And we have never been the same…
Nor would we ever be
