The Slave

A depressed slave dumps himself on the floor at the Corridor Of No Return at Ussher Fort in Accra.

This fort was a trading point between Ghana and Europe before it became a prison. Now, it’s a museum.

Obviously, he’s thinking about his family at home, his beautiful wife, and the freedom that flies away from him.

Would he die at sea when the master boots him off the ledge?
Or would he see the horrendous life at the other end of the ocean?

Life slips away in the absence of freedom.
Strive, therefore, for freedom, not slavery.
