Free to live

Free to live

The land is green,
Yet! All we see is red
The land is white,
Yet! all we hear is war
The land is blessed with soil,
Yet! the people die of hunger.
The land is blessed with brains
Yet! The system frustrates the youths.
The land is green with a future
Yet! The future is wasted ruthlessly.
The system has failed us, the value
For life has been prioritized over
Money and power.

The land is green but
All we see is a desert,
Where we are scared.
The Land is green,
We want to be free to live
