To Move The World

Joseph Kaifala

One more step along the world I have come
Along pavements that seem to lead beyond
From familiar stories a few years done
To a new page almost unknown
Landing on shores that may not bemoan
A philosophy that is not my own

From the lands of the Bambara
Where yemani trees stretch afar
I have swum across the Mano River
Uniting fallen tribes of separate lands
Bearing once more and now
The humble peace my forefathers spread

If these whirly winds be of more use
From the lion’s den I shall arise
Passing through the old and making anew
The cosmos a shape that is yet undone
To leave my mark where I belong

KATEHUN KATEHUN (pronounced Ka-te-hun)-is a Mende word for a symposium or community center where disputes are settled. Everyone is permitted to make his/her case before a presiding chief in an open forum. On this forum, I write primarily for those who stand committed to the Rule of Law in Africa and to the value that our future is better determined by the government of the people, by the people, and in service for the people. To advance the African value of Ubuntu through International Law and the Principles of a United Nations, which propels us towards Life in Larger Freedom.
