Amina Chifupa – A Dream Deferred?
Hers was a mission – a revolutionary mission
Hers was a dream – a liberating dream
Each generation, said Fanon, must discover its mission
Amina had discovered a mission
With the passion of youth, she aimed to fulfill it
But, alas, now it remains a mission postponed!
How long shall we deter the zeal of youth?
How long shall the wisdom of age let things just go?
How long oh daughters and sons of the soil?
Like Brother King, Sister Amina had a dream
Her dream is not dead
It only remains a dream deferred
