JAH RASTA FAR I, Thanks and Praises b-LOVE-d ONES i-munity.

Tonight I sited a video on Langston Hughes in I-bration of I-story. This poem I memorized as a youth. UP LIFTMENT thru the times.


By Langston Hughes

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
......................................................................
These words sound INI ancestors forward
......................................................................
I've known rivers:
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the
flow of human blood in human veins.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young.
I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.
I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln
went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy
bosom turn all golden in the sunset.

I've known rivers:
Ancient, dusky rivers.

My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

I vision of Africa....... Langston hughes did saw africa and it is still like that only some few corrupt africans had began to corrupt it.
I vision it as a place of great opportunities than in babylon where most of as like to dwell. obstructors of our movement try to oppose hughes words and vissions with false ideas about it while themselves are busy to find it to get richer out of it..
All the natural rivers hughes did saw are still here and i enjoys them. I see many great opportunity but i cant take them. why? i lack capital and lazy unlike how my encestors where.it is the result of urbanisation and false development(modernity).
I always invite brothers to visit africa and see what they can do with it.and i will always do it.
Jah guide.
Mloyi.
