Can You Kill Me?

By Moses Kainwo, Freetown, Sierra Leone.

can you kill me

tear my flesh apart
smash my brain out
use a bomb
or a missile
or a gun
or a rope
or an arrow
or a cutlass
my voice bears children of my kind
my song moves quicker on their lips
they bear grandchildren

my spirit goes on
i must go on
