Kenyan Child

I come from a world
Driven by prejudice
Where tribes build bridges
Peace shred into pieces
My only malice
Was to be a Kenyan child
And there they made me blind
Only pain that reigns me inside
Tell me to hope again

What about the tears my mama cried?
Times that broke our ties
The masonry of war tools
Fallen rules
And we ran
Losing our legs and shoes
This country is whose
I saw blood flow like ocean waters
Swore never to forgive the perpetrators
Oh it hurts but I was wrong

I miss my neighbours
They left my family lifeless
Dozens of bloody messes
True
They left me without a heart
Until I could feel no more hurt
But I miss them nevertheless
Even in this touchless stress
And so I have to look for them
Shake their hands in a peace emblem
Then I will hope again
That time will heal my pain

I know I will cry for long
But in hatred I don’t belong
Behind the past I leave
To live
I must forgive
Hard as it may be
My hope shall not be bereaved
I want PEACE
I want a future full of bliss
I want change
Whatever it is
But a better Kenya I please
I will hope again

    out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is
    that what you are using on your blog?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get
    set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

    hang of it!

    added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she
    has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a
    blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses
    a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
