GNU by Batsirai E Chigama

Image -

Backs ache,
With labour pains of a child
That has refused to be born
when we consummated our relationship
We agreed on the name of our first born daughter
We would call her FREEDOM,
The right for our children to education
The right for all to access health
The right for all to live in peace
The rights that, expressed,
Have landed our brothers and sisters in prison.
