WE SHALL OVERCOME
Time will unveil our strength, bigger than Corona The world will value love than coronation

WE SHALL OVERCOME

By Faith Gikunda

All will be over and pain in the cosmos will fade

The wailing and crying will no longer be heard

The world will find its remarkable balance again

Yes, the invisible enemy will be defeated

Yes, we shall overcome

 

Temporary holding hospitals will close doors

Multitudes will recover and dance on the floor

New infections will be locked outside the door

Health workers return to their familiesindoors

We shall overcome, move on swift and strong

 

Television resumes airing telenovelas n wrestling

Football fans celebrating and shouting

Tiny-melodious voices of children merry-making

Learners eager to carry on with learning

We all shall overcome, move on swift and strong

 

Shopping malls will be abuzz with activities

Recreation facilities dispensing their duties

Churches re-opened and filled with activities

Muslims performing their worshiping duties

Indeed, We shall overcome

 

Lockdowns will be locked up and people freed

The markets will be safe again for buyers’ bargain

Public transport safe without passenger suspicion

Sneezing and coughing will no longer be a scare

Yes, in God’s name, we shall overcome

 

Time will unveil our strength, bigger than Corona

The world will value love than coronation

We’ll realize good heath is vital for transformation

We’ll embrace the new world order in jubilation

We shall overcome, and dance in celebration
