Is my African dynamic or is my African, African?
My African comes easy, it feels all too lazy as natural as it comes. I don’t have to feint it, as that would probably taint it. But my African is my constitution, whether I like it or not.
So is my African merely African? Westerners have done a great job at convincing the masses that we are the lazy bunch. So is the fact that I don’t have to dig through the crust of the earth to find my African evidence to the theory?
Africans have always had to dig through the crust. Ask any westerner about things that are of value in Africa, and Gold will form part of the conversation.
It was our gold. It was found here in our own backyard. Yet it belonged to the crown of England, and our only way to earn a mention in its glory was to dig through the crust to unearth it.
Who says unearthed gold has no value? Apparently the streets of heaven are made of gold and other shinny metals and stuff…
They were called the hunter-gatherers… My forefathers.
But I wish they had been respected enough to be called “the people who walk on golden footpaths”.
Look at the narrative. Someone came forward and said “here’s a market. Here you will buy all your fruits and vegetables and anything else to your please”.
But today, they have found a new word to sell. That word is “organic”… It’s funny but not humerus when we Africans then say, “WOW” – if it isn’t not what we were doing before you came along and told us it was wrong.
But my African is African. You say it’s lazy, and so too is my writing. It don’t speak of no science, I know no better about the gods, and do no better for my God, so I’m African. Simply put, I am the moor that William said was good for nothing but my passion.
And this is my passion. To be African. To be what I am. To love as I do. To find these words as easily as they come, and do the things no AI can succumb.
My African is dynamic because what goes up must come down. And when all has been done, all will fall back to were it begun. And at the time of eternal judgement, all will see that Africa has not come undone.
