My Country

 (3 Feb 2011)

Tears trickle down my face as I watch the news

MY COUNTRY…….MY COUNTRY….

I can’t seem to find my space

I holler in anguish as I see the disgrace

From a peaceful riot came an outburst of hate

What happened to my people?

What happened to my Land?

Injustice has caused this upheaval to take place

But now there is a reason to back up with Grace

Until the interference of an unknown disgrace

Our riots were peaceful with one thing in mind

Democracy is all we needed to gain back our pride

Now what is this blood bath?

And what has taken place?

MY PEOPLE…….MY PEOPLE….

You must unite as ONE again
