Souls In Somalia - Poem by Charles Jagongo

It is a rat and cat, a play so prolonged
A child is born, peace not in blood

Tricky game would follow, you do or be done
That one should be, a life is gone

Ten or twelve, a friendly gun in hand
None would help, but the gun in hand

Life is today, love is today, a soul is hardened
For life must be lived, in jungles, so broad.

A longing, for pen and paper would cross
Classes are a longing, a wall line hard to cross

For its fire,
for will to live!
