  • 1845 Indian Arrival Day

    • Out of the boat i step upon the sand
      at the edge of the shore
      leaving behind the happiness of my Motherland
      unknowingly what the future has in store
      the promise of a new city seems like a mirage
      standing over the mountain
      behind the wave
      as helpless as a lamb ready for sacrifice
      I can only breathe and think
      that my life is save

      left with no choice except to listen to the master
      for whatever task lies ahead
      I am compelled to plow the new soil
      and to pass my time
      for the sake of a daily bread
      to think of the painful voyage I cross
      in the shadow of my mind
      the tears refuse to fall from my eyes
      to think as though I am blind

      to make a new home out of straw and mud
      put me in a position where I cannot leave
      the past I have already buried and only in my heart
      I can see to believe
      to discontinue carrying the load of loneliness
      I must awake from my dream
      I must look to perform my duty
      and place my faith
      like a bubble in the stream

      the arrows of the sugarcane gives me courage to
      change the way I think
      look how fortunate I am to reach thus far
      in the journey with my being
      that the boat didn’t sink
      I will look to transform the estate
      into a city and to shape a brighter tomorrow
      the winds of change
      will lead me to overcome my fear
      and to clear all my sorrow.
