#WAROFWORDS2 IT'S IN YOU BY CHIEMEZIE IBE
Rhymes and reason,
two things that came to mind as per this piece.
Simple and straight to the point,
two things that I like about this piece.
Is he good? and can he win?
two questions that will be answered soon enough.
IT'S IN YOU BY CHIEMEZIE IBE
Tales of woe,you tell about your country
A land so blessed flowing with milk and honey.
Like the sands of the desert, resources abound
But in lack and hunger, your people are found.
Working on a stomach that is empty,
and suffering in the midst of plenty.
In search for solution, I call you by name
and quicker than lightening you are to complain,
of how things are no longer the same.
You say the corrupt system drives you insane,
but a key player you are in the game.
What a shame!!
From your eye first, remove the log before you look
for the speck in your brother's, says the holy book.
The Change you seek cannot always be given to you.
