Kenya - Poem by JAY EMM

kenya,
a land of promise
rain and shine,
in plenty our land blessed
from coast where
sweet beaches abound
to the interior where
wildlife and rich soils and weather
to be found

a people rich
in culture and knowledge
so much similar
in aspirations and needs
so much divided
by language and politics

in prayer we ask
for divine intervention
to guide us to our destiny
fought for in the forests of aberdare
the life shed then and thereafter
let it bind us
never should we fail
to honour the dire calls
of the heroes long gone

in unity let us surrender
ourselves to nationality
in governance let us choose
on merit and weed out
lords of anarchy and corruption

Kenya,
our land
let the promise come
