Why wait upon a month, to Celebrate

‘BLACK HISOTRY’

Our Year was 57, Not a Mystery!

Embrace with heart, those who left MARKS

Never forget, why we’re still LARGE.

Dr Nkrumah. Gold Coast Leader,

 A Minster, A Lecturer, BEYOND A Preacher

The Blood of Our Land, Suffered To STAND

Whilst The BRITS, Invaded,

From Stripped To TAKEN

Families AWAKEN, to see the SHAKEN

BRITS, for BLAMING

ALL too SHAMING

Mothers, fathers, from sisters to brothers,

Divided Apart, SHIPPED AFAR

OUR EMPIRE is enriched with ECHOES of SORROWS

              Yaa Asantewaa, FEMALE WARRIOR, Intelligent LEADER

She Was a Believer

She Guarded our STOOL,

YOU Thought we Were FOOLS!

Soaked in Hardship,

Superiority and SHAME

As the pages flipped, Anger grew Fame

We declared our independence in 57.

Never again to serve

Although the Story seems, delight & Bright

Our Country, still suffers from Fright

In 2012, the evidence shows

Slavery EXISTS, slavery still BOLD

From 1957, GHANA has grown,

GHANA’s still young,

Never too OLD,
