CULTURE

Culture is
the variation
of a nation.

It is within
the influence
of our ideaologies
from which
we action
our prophecies.

Culture is
our ancestor’s
blood
which
connects us
to generational
love.

It is shared
sentiments
passed down
resulting in
timeless
immanence.

Culture is the
what was
and
yet
the what will be.

It is the richness
of my soul
it is the speed
of drums
within that rhythm
which moves me.

Culture is
the tone
in which
we speak.
It is
the discovery
from which
we seek.

You see,
culture is
the connection
to meaningful
revelation
inside
and outside
of one’s religion.

It is the unity
which lays
within the
differences;
crafting our
individuality.

Culture is
the manifestation
within each
assembly
of our jewellery.
 
It is the
hand-crafting,
story sharing,
jewellery wearing,
empowering,
Sikaa in me.

Culture is
in the details
disguised by
our message
in all its delicacy
appearing in
our African
gems’ beauty.
Sikaa is me.
