The Poet: Mother Earth Save Our Father Land

O mother earth
Save our father land
Least we be sallowed
By nature’s gift
This thick cloud
Uplift
Least we die in cowardice
Never to have a gleams of this paradise
Passing to the next
Same old stories
With the same excerpt
Stories of
Constitutional reviews
Long overdue
With corruption
On our news captions
And deception
Right from the inception
Of a political group
Stories of abduction.

O mother earth
Save our father land
From the impending doom
Of ethnicity and religious intolerance
Teach us the language of brotherhood
Peace and equity
Teach us that unity makes us stronger
While division leads us to the battle front
Teach us that our greatness
Starts from today
For tommorow will never come
Until we quite folding our arms and waiting.

O mother earth
Lead us to thy fountain
Of ever flowing wisdom
For there lies the crown of leadership .
