A story is told with an aim to demean me, its not ok
to make look less of a person- just by look, its not ok
to make me sound lost of intellect ,its not ok!
and i say again a bout the story, its not ok
Its not ok to treat me like i am black in the 1930’s
when there were no basic rights guaranteed for all around the world
when liberators were considered criminals of grave terrorist like crime
just for fighting for freedom,
yes back when books would talk about my poor brain-or luck of it,
and i wouldn’t know about it as the world laughed at it,
and me? well in my joyous moments
moments such like triggered by the arrival of a new baby
so speechless to express the joy, but sweet
thats why its not ok to just think i am ignorant!
all i am is not just what you hear
its not ok to not judge, but judge me from a point of knowladge
at least i will think you are not ignorant
the story? its not ok
Its not ok to treat my profession with doubt-before seeing what i am about
its not ok to murmur behind my back telling of how dubious i look,
ha! even if i do, tell the world how less of such i think of you?
well after watching them gossip like sissy girls?
tell me how honorable it would be if you stopped that
maaaan! that shit isn’t ok!
and the story you tell of me? maaan have some manners!
you don’t even believe it even
its not okay!
Its not okay that i have to tell on you, back home its a different ball
and yes my bad! its not okay but the world must know this!
because today i have had enough
today be the day that all your shit goes out the window
out to the open air to fly away from me
far where birds can’t reach
to eat away in pain
to block all the not okay things you brought the world
all the calamities you started
its not okay we have to do it now
at a time when mama nature is really against us
but its okay that someone will do it
that someone in me,
but the story once told of me and my perverted way,
that story which you believed without a second thought
love, that story is just not okay
we are all just human and human is perverted in various ways
but we are, i don’t eat frogs but people do-i find it primitive
i eat cow meat but some people don’t-they find me less religious
so Mahaba my love, just tell the okay story
the one you tell?
its just not ok!
