THE YCEO: NOBODY FOR PRESIDENT

NOBODY FOR PRESIDENT
Our ideas are buried in a place
Where our skin gradually harmonises
With the ignorant wall of society
And the news keep showing us obituaries
But not the death of corruption

We're here writing Ode to
A country so far away from CHANGE
In a community where freedom of
Speech do not command the
Full use of our tongue

Our love is hidden in a place
Where laughter died on our cheeks
As we struggle daily to console ourselves
With songs of hope on
How we gambled our rights
And the insane meaning behind the
Lyrics makes us want kill ourselves
Along broken roads that
Don't only damage our cars
But remind us of our votes

How can I be heard?
When we don't go
To war with their kids
And we yell all day counting
Our fingers about promises
They made and the ones they failed

How can we know peace?
When our youths boast of
Bullet wounds
Like they're just mere bruises
And the talk of crisis do not
Makes us run towards
The border

I know because my daughter
Would ask Me again tonight
"Mommy how did you survive?
Can I tell her there is still no light
At the end of the tunnel
That it's just another flag bearer of procrastination
In a nation with a spark of no ambition
In their dirty hands Or

Will I be honest to look her
Straight in the eyes
That I gave room to corruption
I fed it when it was hungry
I gave it strength
When I found it exhausted
I created myself!

VOTE WITH SENSE
If not NOBODY FOR PRESIDENT
