LISTEN YOU UNRULY SON OF THIS LAND.

 

Listen you unruly son of this land.

Listen to the wails of the innocents.

Listen to the cries of your forefathers.

Listen i say! to the quiet noises and muffled rage.

 

Listen i say to the hurrying  feet of your ancestors,

Whom in there intelligence moulded you the real tomorrow ---

Which you have strangled to death.

Oh! Nay! in your clamour for wealth.

 

Where are they? The life savers---

Who trade their morning for a bountiful evening.

Where are they? Those unstained souls--- 

Who kept their pride and dignity high.

Where are the original offspring of this land?

 

Its now, we sweep away the dust,

That stains and hinder our growth.

Its now we join hands and build A BETTER TOMORROW.
