Folony Of Life - Poem by christine ogutu

Many times in many ways
we've been prisoners of faith
our actions portrays the serpent
our shield is our sword
that strangles the hood
we say war is glory
when peace is conflict

In mayhem looting our wording
our burden shifts to
the bloody evil world
the world that drank our begottens
we cast our vision in hope
for manna from the abounds
yet the solution is us

Fear and despondency
cripples our brotherliness
melancholy take the better of us
our pence is sufferation
heaven and earth cry foul
days and nights are forlon
yet we sigh for liberation

Time comes, time goes
we yearn for our lost nationhood
regrets craddle our thoughts
we gather our remains and not enemies
we vision our fruitful and one land
no soul see the others log
united we stand, divided we fall

We are both victims
but the past is past
now there is only one future
the war is over and we can build
destroy the shadowing logs
get on track our lives
in peace and not in pieces.....
