Asimbonanga

One who has yet to be seen!

written by: Donna Africa

So off I ventured
on my journey
ten years ago
to a land anew
with great hope
and belief
in my heart
to realise,
create
and make true
my African Dreams

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

Crossing colossal
deep blue
& stormy seas
to a Great &
United Kingdom
so afar
& verdant green
to a land that
I had never seen

leaving my homelands
Zimbabwe & Africa
so far behind me
to pursue
and realise,
my frustrated
pent-up
African dreams

that had for so long
laid dormant
caged and
embedded
deep down
inside of me
longing to be
liberated
heard
and finally
set free!

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

I don’t feel so alone
but proud & bold
as I share my
Zulu Warrior Dance
here today
before you

with the spirit
and heart of
The Great Zulu
Warrior King
Shaka Zulu
who bestows
and shares
his bravado
and bravery with me

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

Dressed as his
loyal Impi warrior
with bare feet
& trusty assegai
I feel the presence of
Shaka Zulu
King and Almighty
Leader near

Chieftain King Shaka Zulu
to whom I emulate
and pay homage
for giving me
great courage
and who inspires me

to share
my African dream
and vision
with the young
and the old
to make their future
bright and clear

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to one who
has yet to be seen!

As I truly believe
and advocate
that it is never to late
and you are never too old
to realise and
create your dreams

Asimbonanga
Hey you
Hey wena
Hail to One
who has never given up
on her dream!

Yebo-a-go-go!

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

I was inspired by the spirit of “The Great Shaka Zulu” & African Artist, Johnny Clegg.

To create my African Dream
I needed a TEAM
with raw talent
to connect as “One”
to show you that
this could indeed
be achieved & done
by coming together
as “One!”
I hope I have inspired you!

With Luv, Light and Liberty,
Your “Queen of dreams”

NOVEMBER 2016 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
I call myself Donna Africa "The Queen of Dreams" as I relocated from my homelands and motherland Africa to the UK in 2004 to realise and conquer my dreams of yesteryear today!
I was inspired to write poetry by Rodriguez (Cold Fact Fame) Keats (when I sat under the Plum Tree) and Shaka Zulu famous King & warrior and renown for uniting all the tribes as ONE!
I hope my poems inspire and connect as one as this is my dream, vision and life journey!
With Luv, Light and Liberty!
