                 If Only We Could

by Boyd Kaimbi Chibale
 
 
I hear a voice calling,

Thunder howling

Screaming to my heart,

Deafening my ears

Increasing my tears,

My fears.

I hear a voice calling,

Far in the wilderness with bitterness,

anguish

I hear a voice calling

Of rape, incest, defilement,

The voice is against.

Of child labour, torture, cruelty

The voice is against.

Of illiteracy, injustice, poverty

The voice is against

Of hunger, homelessness, illness

The voice is against.

Of war, terrorism, violence

The voice is against.

Of insecurity, corruption, racism

The voice is against.

Of xenophobia, anarchy, nepotism

The voice is against.
