From The Sweat - Poem by samuel nze

From the sweat of
Our old poor parents
We grew into men
Ready to sweat for others
To make them grow too

Society is founded
On the sweat of slaves
Those working hard quarrying stones
Build others like houses
Even though the pope
Quarried stones
To build himself

From the sweat of
Our old poor parents
We grew into men
Ready to make ourselves
The best we can.
