My humble homage to Africa and to all Africans

PRODIGAL SON

Feizi M. Milani


Mother Africa,
I humbly come to meet you
yearning, eager, thirsty...
is there still room for me in your lap?

Mother Africa,
I grew up far from your caring eyes,
in other gardens have I played
I have fallen asleep at the whispering of other stories
and therefore
little do I know of you
and little do you know of me...
Will you still have the patience to teach me?

Mother Africa,
throughout the world I searched for my path,
through far-off lands I journeyed,
other peoples, cultures and languages I came to know,
only to discover
that they were also born in your cradle
and are your children
and are my brothers and sisters...
will you still welcome me back home?

Mother Africa,
maybe you will not remember me
perhaps you will look at me and fail to recognize me,
it may well be that I look very different from your other offspring living with you,
but
my roots come from your sacred womb,
my heart beats in the same rhythm as your drums,
my nights were swung in your loving cradle
and my days, filled with your joyous presence,
my thirst was quenched with your gracious wellsprings,
and my hunger, allayed by your generosity,
my toddling began before you
and my first tears were shed on your soil...

Mother Africa,
I know I have been distant
when you needed me most,
I have pretended to be deaf
when you let out your wails,
I have alienated myself
when confusion prevailed at your home,
my compromising attitude
has prevented me from being side by side with my siblings...
will you still welcome me with your embrace?

Mother Africa,
one of your prodigal sons
is back...
Please,
behold him with your compassionate and understanding eyes,
lend out your warm and firm hand to him,
embrace him with your soft and comforting hug,
swing him in your cozy lap
and... forgive him,
with your loving and motherly heart...

Mother Africa,
your forgiveness I beseech
for myself
and for those among your other children who,
not having inherited your virtues,
oblivious of your being their true homeland,
deluded by their childish ignorance,
and inflamed by their adolescent arrogance,
have come back home,
not to thank you and glorify you,
but to disrespect and trample you,
hurt your children,
steal your riches,
destroy your gardens,
exploit your generosity...

Mother Africa,
forgive me.

Mother Africa,
forgive us all.

(I wrote this poem while visiting Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana, back in 1999)

Oi, Feizi

Eu sou meio perdida nessa plataforma e, por incrível que pareça, só hoje vi sua mensagem para mim. Fiquei super feliz com as boas-vindas, ainda que só as tenha visto tanto tempo depois. Mas, como acredito que o tempo está sempre a nosso favor, sei que nosso contato se dá na hora certa :)

Acabei de chegar de Nairobi e ler seu poema fez mais sentido agora do que em qualquer outro momento. Estou segura que temos muito a trocar/compartilhar. Vamos manter o contato!!

Abraço fraterno,

Graciela

Hello Feizi,
Thanks for sharing such an inspiration poem. It is so moving. right now, I have put together a collection of my poems number 40 on the subject of war and peace, refugee life and early childhood in Sierra leone. The poems span a decade of my writing them. I am currently looking for possible publisher as well as some joint publication. will send you samples soon
warm wishes, Andrew

OI, Feizi, td bem?

Querido...que coincidência! Vou pra África daqui a alguns meses pra receber treinamento pra trabaçhar a questão da VAW e as ferramentas para trabalhar a questão entre os/as jovens de SP. Inicialmente eu ia usar apenas o recurso artistico, mas como sabemos que futebol é a vitrine de nossos jovens e que há muita violência contra as mulheres por causa do futebol (todas as ações geradas por um esporte ainda tido como machista e violento), acho que podemos ampliar e trabalhar esta questão. Vou pedir conselhos a vc!

Bjos e abraços, amigo!
Fer
ps: (vc tbém é amigo da Zonezi? ela é um amor e muito competente! Brilhante!)

Hello Feizi! I just read your profile status and I must say, that is an excellent idea.
Indeed, mainstream GBV principally VAW in through footballs.
courage!

well! i wish most of our medical centers could emulate it and start mainstreaming GBV into their medical programms, bc to b honest some medics scare their female patient a lot

Hi Mr,
I said that I was preparing my thesis on "Violence against children in learning professional" and I'm at the end of my first year. I would like to benefit from your advice and guidance in writing my thesis. Your book: • Violência faz trouble saúde, published by the Ministry of Health of Brazil. Co-author. 2004 interested a priori. Can I possibly get a copy?
Thank you and I hope to keep in touch with you!
