BARE FOOTS IN THE STREETS

December 10, 2017
Living inside the roof of depression,
walking helter shatter like mental patients,
Bitterness abducted sweetness from our coven,
Our lips were shut by the federation,
No wonder the government speak of promises during campaign.
Our feets stepped on broken bottles without pains,
 humanity painted us useless,
Eyes vowed to help the homeless,
Cloth our naked bodies, but the garment of procrastination they wore,
How then do the eyes of the nation live in ignorance?
Exposed children;
Their deity of self believe is lost?
 Their dreams found in the wonder land,
Barefooted in the streets of Africa, no care from anyone,
How then do we show love?
When love is lacking in our homes.
Barefooted ;
We are the radiant lights behind darkness,
give us that privilege to communicate without interruption from the eyes,
we got creativity from positivity, give us our right government.
