If I did it?

By Zoneziwoh Mbondgulo

If I did it?
If I did it
I heard it
More and more sounding
And when I call
I see no one
Just one more I thought I should
I was gone
Gone? Yes gone
People come, people go
Round or no round
Yet the stage still remains even without guards.
There is no world for particular colors.
Someday, the sky will have no cloud
The stars wouldn`t struggle to shine,
This! I pray;
I pray for that day where red wouldn`t be ceremony
That day where the sun will shine,
Smiling in good faith
And the rain shall clap praising.
If I did it?
Bleeding tears not for they
But for the souls lost
Vacancies which can`t be replace
If I did it
Let my kids` witnesses the world having another story to tell
If I did it, let my path be,
Surely my tour is completed.

Dedicated to all those who were (have been) victims of genocides.
