WHO REMEMBERS SOMALIA?
my brothers and sisters of African descent
born and breed by the same stretch of land
yet you know only blood & war from my peace and unity
others abandon and disown you with nothing but bad press to show
why the bad out plays the good is hard to know
though I see your point hidden behind a gun
it's hard to relate when bullets aren't flying inches by your head
even though they see the past I see your future
the prodigal son returns to a loving father
the spoils of sea, a pirates glory befit
the few left standing from jihad may see sense in peace
religion is fundamental to any society by its freedoms
how far can we go in the name of the almighty to his wrath
liberty begins in a peaceful mind resonating to the soul
pay some respect for your elders bearing in mind you have a place
better bury that hatchet cause east or west all roads lead home
Peace, Love and unity for all and all for one Africa, amen.
