It's our Generation that will do It Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Environment , Human Rights   Opinions


The moment I hear them mention poverty
My mind reminds me of the future
there is no future with poverty
it is a lost future in the face of poverty

Our leaders needs to speak out
our teachers needs to teach us
our youth needs to live out
our people just needed understanding

What shall we do to win this struggle?
My pastor said, "we just need to pray"
My mother said, "Go and sleep"
Our leaders said, "We are committed against poverty!"

It is our future they are choosing for us
A future that looks promising
Of making poverty history
As the means will justify

No excuse 2015 is our statement
But it is around the corner of our village and school
Yes, we have to stand up and walk
And say IT to the world
That we can make poverty history with our VOICES
A generation that holds the key is around!
The generation in “us”!
