Better Tomorrow? – Susan Syondie
I’m a worrier!
I worry when my periods don’t come on time
I’m not the kama mbaya, mbaya, type of girl
I worry when my sister has been dumped
And eating becomes a thing of the past!
When a father neglects his duty for his kids
And turns his face away from what matters
Coiling his hands when they need help
But extending it for strangers to eat from!
When families turn into foe
Make their homes battlefields
When people meant to catch a bullet for you
End up shooting you instead!
When a government neglects its citizens
And leaders forsake their people
When churches turn into businesses
And the christians allergic to the truth!
When we become social bullies
Pushing people off cliffs
And instead of saving them from fire
We end up putting them in cuffs
