Anguished Laments

Let’s heal our women and protect them not to darken her light

Anguished laments I have in my heart

Everyday wondering how Vera would carry on

Dawn cracks she’s there awake doing chores

While Mutethia is busy sleeping and snoring hmmm!

Warmth of his bed eating his flesh and engulfing him

Vera, busy with chores while Mutethia snoring zzz

 

Mutethia wakes up, eats and drives his sleek BMW to work

While she’s there at home sitting and waiting for him in the evening

Like a faithful dog, she accept everything she’s given because of being a woman

She can’t object because its Mutethia’s belief she’s feeble

But how long shall this continue in our society while we stand

When Mutethia’s want to maintain the status quo of their own

 

At our very own home, we are the very ones destroying our Vera’s

Mutilating them in the name of tradition, their womanhood destroyed

While Mutethia go scoot free while tradition protects them

A pack of hounds we are surely in this society!

How long shall an African woman sob and we stand on the fence

I cry! Because she’s been left on an island unguarded and susceptible

 

Have we ever sat back and thought about our women’s emotions

The pain, the agony and psychological torment and aftermath

Because of it, mother Africa encounters problems and pain

In giving birth to Mutethia junior, senior and the rest

Let’s feel their sorrow and agony filled in their heart but, why

All this?

 

I stand over a weeping African woman because of my pride

To rub away tears of sorry and replace them with jovialness

To nurture the strength and woman in an African woman

To her, light is glowing and slowly rising to shine its fullest

Let’s heal our women and protect them not to darken their light

Because at the end of the tunnel, there is light for her African women.
