Paradise Kenya - Poem by JAY EMM

I see you
my life
full of strength and vigor
prosperity flowing deep
into the veins of all

roads shining and clear
tar swallowing the mud
standard gauge railway
whirling and snaking its way
in regions simmering with resources

airports beaming with life
tourists in number arrive
our culture and scenery
not a match yet found
the big five in our parks
to feed your eyes are ready

wind and water harnessed
geothermal and sun adding megawatts enough
for industries mushrooming all over

bureaucratic means passed
huduma centres here and there for us
ICT taking us far
schools and offices digitized

loans and grants floated
youths and women granted
interest free for future focus
firms and farms fortified
everywhere it is jubilee

laws and rules passed
a people's constitution in place
lawlessness and crime cracked
inclusivity our strength
marginalization a distant past
child or challenged protected

landlessness and displacement worked on
title deeds issued and ownership proven
poverty and disease cleared

beyond zero campaign
to kick out maternal mortality
free maternal health care rolled out
universal health care accomplished
as forty seven referrals made to bring
health care to the rural

food security our achievement
hectares and hectares irrigated
our lives secured
as operation Linda Nchi intensifies
terrorists frozen out
killed and maimed
our armed forces sworn
to guard our paradise

everywhere the song is rife in the air
Kenya is a paradise
Kenya is singing Jubilee.
