Here We Come 2030 - Poem by christine ogutu

When I see, I look at myself

my mind is set but am into one thing;

I don care the blocks

I don fear no one'

not even the mighty evil

can shake me.

the world is here and am there'

here I am with multy remedies!

who is gona change the world?

You or Me?

who is gona cater for the afflicted?

is the society at ease?

well! well! well!

the solution is me and you.

stand on and be counted.

be the leader, not the boss.

When I see, I look at you

I see no colour in you

not even your tribe is my mind

my brain is Kenya's flag

I am the people and you are the world

the constitution, my lyrics

I sing them like A.B.C

so am I a leader?

mmm, maybe, maybe not.

see the jua kali sector,

hard labour, small pay, huge taxes

are we satisfied?

for the common mwanainchi, NO!

for the high, an absolute YES!

NO because, am still going,

YES because, I've reached the sky.

so it is the HIGH against the DOWNTRODDEN?

what of KENYA?

Yet again, the EL BASHIR saga?

another suspence in store,

so little to be proud of

a fugitive in a happy land?

who is to blame?

the govt? people? you or me?

no one knows!

but wait, I saw handshakes,

we say promulgation date,

a real wedding day

the marriage is here with us

the offsprings, Kenyans.

implementation is upto us.

2030 a mirage but real in seconds.

The journey is set,

the train is ready,

and we are here

get on board.
