FREE TO LIVE
Can a bird be caged in the air
where freedom is free?
Can the music of sonorous voice?
Be limited from singing its melody?
Can the oceanic water cry?
Out in pain for the will to live?
Why does she have to weep?
Like there is no hope for tomorrow.
Why does she have to bleed?
Like a tap that keeps running.
Why does she have to beg?
When the natural providence is in abundance.
Why does she have to labour?
Like a waiting mother at child birth.
She cries and fights,
For selfishness and greediness have ruled
The empire of her world and existence,
Her children are bound by the chains
Of poverty and, hunger, unemployment,
Corruption, assaination, human trafficking,
War, rituals and kidnap, insecurity.
She is tired, feeble and weak!
She fights with the strength of
For the protectors of the land killed
Their siblings in sheer wickedness
For the hunt of the paper Idol(money).
in their journey of finding the cyber criminals.
She cries! She cries! She cries!
For the protectors of the land
Have killed without mercy.
