AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN THE NORTH

AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN THE NORTH.

The sky totally changed  murky
Houses, and schools were set ablaze;
Everyone in the market was in a hurry
We saw our neighbour shot  death;

With tears in our eyes,
We took his body away;
Tears where falling from the sky,
Our teacher too was shot down the lane;

Men were burned with fire like bush meat,
For our flesh they putrid;
We saw dogs and swine eat carcasses,
We cried both women, lads, and lasses;

We saw armies trooping,
Into the city with their war tanks;
And that made us to keep believing,
Although it wasn't a smooth shiny track;

Now the main road we cannot cross,
For our hunters were every where;
We cried for help but there was none,
All hope was lost like a lilly in the mere;

It is a day we will live to tell the story,
Of how we were hurt by people so Conny;
These happened somewhere in the north,
We will never forget the men we have lost.

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
