Children of the Masses

know yourself

There is a path that your part can partake in.

We are the children of the masses
Watching our parents work and toil with great mass
Hopefully we expect good reward for their labours
But their fruits taken into others habors.

We are the children of the masses
Through the road of thorns our parent(s) passes
Expecting their soles’ blood to turn wealth
But they die to loss of health.

We are the children of the masses
Though our parents strive to get salaries
Their efforts compensated with chains
Where some of them get slain.

We are the children of the masses
Calculating our parents diligence in grosses
But all become losses
Through the hardness of higher forces.

We are the children of the masses
Crying everyday over the increment of taxes
Yet petroleum prices increases fare of taxis
Relentlessly the government brings worse tactics.

We are the children of the masses
Hopelessly, our parents cry under the feet of the oppressors,
Wanting to stay in office without successor,
But one day, we will strife and be the savior.

Attitude

Keep doing it,
Someday someone will see it.

It might not have been that good,
But your commitment will cover a rood.

I’ll keep doing good everyday,
Cos I saw the result yesterday.

Purpose

“The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”
Myles Munroe
