foluke's african skies

The history of humanity seems to be defined by human eyes 

looking away… 

Looking away from dead bodies floating in the water, 

Looking away from p
eople trapped in steel cans, 


Looking away from dead bodies, 

Looking away from people turned to blood and bone, 


Looking away from people turned smoke and dust

Looking away, looking away from dead bodies… 


Always we look away, turn away, go on with our day, 


Guard jealously our plate…leave them to their fate… 


Let’s leave them to their fate, 



They died long before, 


Long before their breathing ceased,

Long before their blood was shed,

Long before the bombs and the fire,

Long before the waters bore them away,


They died from indifference much stronger than hate.
