I have a song to sing

but my voice is horse

I have some sweet words to utter

but whom shall i utter to?


Peace,a five letter word

while violence,a eight letter word

with its long pronounciation

it pleases many to do

Where will peace come from?

If not you and i


Kenyans have not known peace yet

Talk of bomblast 1998

The many terror attacks

The post election violence 2007-2008

The suguta valley scandal

The kapedo massacre

The mpeketoni church attack

The tana delta scandal

The west gate siege

And here comes another tragedy

The Garissa university attack

When will kenyans experience peace?


Our future leaders,doctors and lawyers

were lain in Garissa university

To many it was a journey set for prosperity

Excellent and future leadership

Not knowing the end of it

When will kenyans feel free of peace?
