WHERE IS THE FIRE? Poem by kelvin karani


Where is the fire
That burnt in freedom fighters
Making them selfless
Dying for our independence

Where is the fire
That burnt in J.M and Ouko
And others who were felled
Making them love truth
For it, paying the ultimate price

Where is the fire
That burnt in the then leaders
Making them fearless
Suffering for multiparty politics

Where is the fire
That burnt in civil rights activists
The poor peoples defenders
And others who attended kamukunjis

Where is the fire
That burnt individualism
In dire times of crises

Where is the fire?
