Black Legend

by Toris Okotie

From the north to the south
East to the west
A tale was told:
"Freedom to the Black People"

In songs and lyric
"Exodus" was written, to tell a story:
"Movement from slavery"
A prophet to the people
Bob Marley reigns

With dreams and hope
He dreamt so well
And as he sleeps
"I have a dream" he speaks

"Free Mandela"
The voices of South Africa cries
Longing for their stolen legend

Africa, mother to black legend
Your fertile womb continues to conceive
For today was born
Another black legend
