What was meant for all
They took to themselves
What our motherland gave us
The willed to their generations
Kept us starving
Kept us in perpetual darkness
And smiled in their mischief
Told us stories
Fell on the floor like we did
Just to make us feel 
we all danced the same tune

Where are their wards
Where are their children
They have gathered us 
in our hungry state
Told us the misery 
and blame tales 
we have always heard
Handed us peanuts 
tied in their branded bags
So we ate desperately 
and danced away our conscience

Where are their wards
Where are their children
Their arrant confidence 
told them we will come again
The hunger they put us in 
brought us again
The promises they made 
they claim they have not forgotten
They have promised again

They have given us the weapon 
of our words against realities
They have given us weapons 
to divide and destroy ourselves
Weapons to destroy their enemies
They have given us stuffs
Hardened us against pain
And pushed us to do their dirty deals

Their wards have sailed away
From the 'dirtiness' of the business
They have fanned the flames of war
And sent their children away for safe keep
And put us on the front line as their bulletproofs

How long shall we continue in this circle
Waiting for their unfulfilled promises
Destroying ourselves
Impoverishing ourselves
Selling our mandate for meals
Selling our future for peanuts

How wise are we now
Are we really ready for a change
Are we ready to get it right
We will make a difference
When we are ready
No better time to be ready than now

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
