The West stigmatizes Her

The West stigmatizes Her

She gave me my primal breath and key to life
And anointed me in dainty alabaster ointment, 
Ancestral fibrous roots fused nature in nurture.
I quest for that refreshing Atlantic sea breeze,
As the unadulterated Olorshoro river runs deep
Of crafted chip from a supernal assembly line:
The West stigmatizes her, a land of disrepute,
Where barbarism, weird violence bloom bright:
Coniferous Mountain, blooming ‘blood diamond’
But who initiated that latent, endemic violence,
Who loads their deep pockets in bloody profits?
Pundits said that God has left dear motherland.

A blind-leprosy beggar with outstretched hands, 
With telling and fixed eyes still expecting alms: 
Some neighbors passed by on the opposite side.
Iron ore, diamond, gold abound, but not to share
But a Samaritan showed her utmost compassion, 
As experience echoes: “rise up and walk upright.”
