WE WON’T FADE INTO DARKNESS

(Inspired by T.J. Benson’s Collection of Short Stories with the Same Name as Above)

We won’t be caught in a thicket of loss,
Even at a time when light cries for life.

*Èwọ̀. K’a má ráá. K’a má ráá s’ókùnkùn. Èwọ̀.

We won’t be left in the dark robe of tears, even though
Candlelights seek to steal the beaming throne of the moon.

We won’t be trapped in a Bermuda Triangle of thoughts,
Even when our days continue to growl like the beach.

Èwọ̀. K’á má ráá. K’á má ráá s’ókùnkùn. Èwọ̀.

We won’t be thrown in the mouth of running, blind bullets,
Even when this sojourn grows dusky with bomb explosions.

We won’t be forced into hunger’s tight pants,
Even as money thinks Ebola lives on the common man’s palms.

Èwọ̀. K’á má ráá. K’á má ráá s’ókùnkùn. Èwọ̀.

We won’t be locked in the cell of awaited death’s visit,
Even when our rivers keep sobbing with lubricated sadness.

We won’t fade into darkness!
We won’t be paid into darkness!

Èwọ̀. K’á má ráá. K’á má ráá s’ókùnkùn. Èwọ̀.

  • GLOSSARY:
    Èwọ̀: Abomination
    K’a má ráá: May we not vanish.
    K’a má ráá s’ókùnkùn: May we not vanish into the dark.
