Black Soul

written by: Lionel Ntasano



In a quest to achieve his goal
The black man
Stumbles and crumbles
And loses his soul

He believes the world to be simple
Lacking the capacity for evil
Eyes wide shut is his thesis
Praying aloud to sweet baby Jesus
The silent Lord of his Temple

Descendant of Ham
Brother of Japheth and Shem
Cursed by his father Noah
Condemned to be a slave hence the beginning of the Shoah

They want to break his soul
Hate yourself! They propagate
Slowly dying inside as they close the prison gate
The black man
Stumbles and crumbles
And loses his soul

Lionel was born in the third smallest county in Africa, also, one of the most unknown countries in the world - Burundi. He has lived, traveled, and studied all over the globe, trying new things (Here), enjoying transient relationships (There), and safekeeping values from (Everywhere) - He is secretly a Beatles fan to say the least, a musician at heart, culinary chef by profession, but, George Orwell tapped into his unconscious mind liberating a part of him through literature. He has made it his lifetime goal to share this liberating abstract ideology by writing. His first attempt was by publishing a novel titled, 'Greener On The Other Side'.
