Black Is Beauty

by George Kofi Sukah Anyidoho

Very  beautiful  and  unique
but  they  spit  on  me
All  they  say is:  
as  dirty  as  black
Negro race, you  slaves, you  dirty  creatures
the  days  of  slavery
Racism, Racism
in  our very  native  land
the  greatest  heap  of  dangerous  racists
I  hate  you  says  the  black
I  hate  you  says  the  Ashantis
so  is  the Ewes  and  the  Gas
Tribal war
Racism  is  enmity
the  destruction  of  the  mind
the  cancer  of  war
the  pain  of   regret
no   defense,  no  security  for  us,
no  escape  through  the  laws  of  cultures, cuistoms,
history, language, religion, colour
Racism, a  sin  and  a  suffering  of  the  world,  
of  the  races,  of  you  and of  me
Racism  has  filled  our  graves  with  bones.
