Youth Arise!

by Olamitayo Irantiola

Culled from

We craved for change,
We wanted a youth,
We got bold representations,
We are quick to discard,
We uncover many excuses-
How much money do they have?
How would they generate internal revenue?
They have godfathers
They will embezzle
They are too young?
They are the desperate ones of the earth

A young bachelor once ruled!

The song has changed-
They are unknown?
How do they get known?
When one mindset is all on Moneybags?
They are inexperienced?
When all opportunities have been made family property!

Our strength fails as youths,
They all crave for more chances with not charted course!
Wake up!
Arise oh! Youth!
Stop squandering your lots!
