It’s a new dawn…the darkness diminishes like a vapour that dissipates from a boiling water. The day gradually overtakes. The night took longer than expected; full of darkness, fears and trembling, malignity, subjugation, and pains. I see a quantum beam of light springing forth like a small flower that has longed for growth and exposure, shooting up, to show to the world how beautiful it is.
I have so desperately hoped for a change like the hungry child who sits in front of the house in the evening, looking and expecting the return of her mother who left the house since morning for the farm and haven’t returned. Over a couple of centuries – when will the night be over. It has been full of agony, marginalization, starvation, molestation, injustice, prejudice… I sleep over my sorrowful thoughts, anticipates to wake up to see the new dawn, but hey! The time haven’t gone pass 2am. The time crawls
All of the sudden, I look through the window, and I see the emergence of a red light somewhere beyond the sky. This light is illuminating. It refreshes my soul and gladdens my heart. It is as small as the fist of a baby boy with a radiating smile. Could this be a sign of a new day? It’s a new dawn already. There seem to be hope after all.
I thought the day would never come, but look up and see with me the sun gradually becoming bigger and more visible. Darkness takes to her heels! Do you want to hear the truth? I almost gave up. I thought the light was never going to come. Everyone had given up, but here it is, smiling and beckoning at me. I can literally hear him say to me, “there is hope still”
Cheer up Africans, I say to the world, “wait for us, we are coming…” The world is yet to experience an unprecedented revolution from this “black” race. I say to the world, “you haven’t seen anything yet”. There is a stir up among the blacks that is about to explode and shake the world. Over many centuries, the black man is being equipped and charged up for a supernatural walk – inexplicable wisdom like the wisdom of god. Arise and shine for your light has come!!
