We Are We And They Are They - Poem by Wale Morakinyo

Discrimination for years have stay
We are we and they are they
Close thee my eyes for they are they
In pain or loss they are still but they

5.They die or sick or fear instill
We fold our arms they are they but still
Hunger, disease, sometimes perill
We cross our legs they are they but still

When will the world begin to say
10.The earth is ours we hold the sway
They are brothers in pain and not but ‘they’
They are sisters that die, and not just ‘they’

The change begins with you, so say I will
Then rise to save and not to kill
15.There are brothers to save and so we will
There are sisters that die, to save we will.
