” Life consists in what a man is thinking of all day “- Ralph Waldo Emerson
This type of beautiful face,
Is sad and is crying,
You may wonder why,
Beautiful faces shed sad tears.
Behind all faces in Africa
Are concealed tears,
Tears of lost hopes
Tears of Idleness and hunger,
Tears of Anger and frustrations ,
Tears that our leaders are fast loosing
Touch with Schools of wisdom,
Tears that even our ordained are
failing in their Services,
Tears that we have driven God´s mercy far faraway
And tears that our Children will never be heard.
Every Corner in Africa, Arab and globally,
Are beautiful faces with sad tears,
Crying for understanding,
Pleading for clear Leadership,
And to stop global Terror,killings
looting ,hunger and corruption .
They cry out and look for hope ,
They search it with tears,
But will never find it.
They are not heard,
Because no one is paying Attention,
They way of the wicked,
corruption, bad leaders and bad citizen
Have overtaken .
Have you asked why the sad tears,
Why These dim face,
Why These rain Drops?
You Keep thinking why,
Your head Pounds ,
Your mind itch.
Why the sadness ?
You love your Country,
You want everything work
You plan your life
You hope all work,
Souls that do not sleep
But worry and cry
And just shed tears.
Lo! this tears speak a warning to our Nation.
Please stop bad Leadership,
For Glory is the Portion of the wise.
