Fela Kuti long poem

Photo by ruurmo

You got a part
I got my broken heart
Live and let them walk
Build a bridge and break that wall
Look up at the sky, without any pillar it never falls
Wake up and stand tall
This world is not your garden, not my farm
Let us be all one
Walk and talk
Live and love
As fela did
Like him let’s pass the truth by heart
Let’s stand fair and near
Fela is not just my fantasy or a new word just learned
It’s what I got to learn about standing for your right
For your belief
For your people
I wonder, oh god how can the world let Fela go..!!
And I just loved listening that from FELLA …, BLACK AFRICAN PRESIDENT___PANSA PANSA…YOU WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT MY VISION…
KNOW MORE ABOUT MY PASSION
& PLEASE JUST REMIND MY VOVAGE OF WORDS IS NOT JUST A FASHION
IT’S JUST A SPIRITUAL GAME
THE UNDERGROUND SPIRITUALITY, as fella calls it ‘COZ THOSE ON THE ROOF OR TOP OF IT NEVER EVER ACCEPT our or your SPIRITUALITY
IT’S JUST YOU
JUST ME
WHO HAVE TO WALK FOR THIS,
TALK OF THIS
MAKE THIS A VERB AND WORD AND USE IT LIKE A SWORD
Fela …oh fela
I just pray
And wish all from now
Will put something like you
Or I will get in some boots of you..
It will be all loving to live with strength, truth and die instead for justice and equality
And from a distant land where the bullets and ballads are the same
I ran from the lanes to a city like jungle
Where all I saw was even more heartbreaking
Here people die and they are walked over
Here they see one’s cloth and color
I wonder about whatever they talk..
The democracy, the freedom to speech
It’s just an art to restrict the true get on wall
Let’s just get over hate and walk on our own fate
Being here and listening to …it makes me think and sing
..lalaaa..laaalaa..laaaa..laa..laaa.laaa.laaaa..hey you stop wasting your time
Live like fela…and say to them who talk of things so large and loud\be like fela..
Love like he loved like
From a street to valley let the message be all on
Love for all
Hate for none
Respect whoever
every day I walk in frost and I meet a few who give some new thought
And just become a good part
Some walk away
And some lie always deep here in our heart

This gentleman Fella. Do we know him, if we do he has still ways to go.
