Marcelo A. Ndongo Mba
(translated by Mark Andrew Holmes)
Cruel death, which
tears from our arms
without pity the most beloved image,
smashing the soul to smithereens
by the absence of being and being forgotten.
And even though he’s absent,
one endures the imprint of his steps,
beating in our hearts and encouraging our life.
