ALI BOMAYE

In Kinsaja, Central Africa, ex Zaire,
something wonderful one day
long time ago
happened.
I like to remember your strenght more than your speed
your mind more than your hearth
your world more than this world.
You gave us hope, and courage
and we can just run after you, ideally,
shooting as children have shouted all those days long
"Ali bomaye!"
It means "Ali kill him" but is a song of freedom
it is a song of people that want to break free.
Having this hope, to break free at last,
even a song of death
become
a song of life
thanks to your punches that stopped the reality
to be too real
and get a dream to dream of
a life
to live in
a death
to rest in peace.
Ali, bomaye!
