DEFINITIONS (Unity, Truth, Healing)

As I sought within myself for words I would love to say to my country during this fragile season, I composed a series of 3 short poems that I named ‘Definitions (Unity, Truth, and Healing) ’. My message to you all is within those lines… I hope you find it.

As I sought within myself for words I would love to say to my country during this fragile season, I composed a series of 3 short poems that I named ‘Definitions (Unity, Truth, and Healing) ’. My message to you all is within those lines… I hope you find it.

UNITY

There is power
There is hope
It is louder
It can’t be stopped
It means strength
It means health
It means victory
It means destiny
Our source of direction
Our sense of motivation
Our courage and determination
Our deserving of a standing ovation
A world beyond impossibilities
A country of renewed abilities
A society of responsibility
A home of credibility
Creation of unbreakable bond
Formation of an inerasable dream
Reclamation of a long lost past
Foundation of a remarkable future
Unity… the antidote
Unity… the essence
Unity…the solution
Unity… Rwanda’s only way out!
TRUTH
Our vision, our pathway
Our hope, our doorway
Into our future
Into our dream
Our strength, our guiding light
Our courage, our soul’s plight
Our confrontation of our past
Our attachment to our roots
Our estrangement from despair
Our platform for battle
Against our true enemies
Deceit and division
Discouragement and detachment
From our purpose
From our prayer
Rwanda’s encounter with Victory!

HEALING

The story we are left to tell
The journey whose end we’re yet to see
The highlight of our banners
The sunlight over our fields
Healing is the warmth in our homes
Healing is the beauty of our cities
Healing is the song on our lips
Healing… should be our very heartbeat
Of the people of this land
Of child, woman or man
River or lake
Hill and valley
Healing… Rwanda’s shield!
