The Sin of Ignorance

Filed under: poems @ 12:42 pm

There is a ’smile’ in me

That frowns at lies told by kin-breathren

Preachers of love that know no love

Justices that seek death of the innocence

Listen to my song-

On truth was our great foundation layed

On truth, our forebears gave their lives

In deceit we live and groom our young

And deny them a lasting smile, a future

With a sigh, I watch, I write, I sing, with fist and hope

Tomorrow, I know, will come with light for all

And our sin of ignorance, overcome.

Charles Wiwa (Jan 4, 2006)
