Poem of the Week: We are the Future

 We are the Future

(Inspired by a TY Bello Song of the same name)

I am the future

A colossus straddling space and time

Holding high the torch of glory

Re shaping the destiny of a nation

We are the future

A people made strong and proud

Free from fear and despair

We hold the healing salve

Bringing succor to a wounded land

After the generation of leaches

Sucking dry the oil wealth

And a generation of vultures

Savaging  the remains of an injured dying state

At last here comes the healers

We are the future
