The Cry Of A Nation - Poem by victor onyango

Yesterday was such a lovely day
We bred unity an shunned hatred at bay
Our people gracefully sway
Like peacocks in the harvest of winters may
We embraced one another gracefully
Our diversity was our strength and pride

But soon
The dark clouds started grumbling
Rattling with rhythmic rumbling
Good neighbors turned enemies
Blood ferociously flown
The people maimed themselves
And blame games consumed us all
Heightened suspicions and mistrust
Our diversity became that which makes us different
A shadow has been cast between us and the future.

From a far is a good scent
I see a different generation
A people with broader concerns for humanity
Restoration of a lost glory
I sense victory for our people
And on your support i count.
