tiger
Oh the path we tread

Full of thorns n traps

Stained by blood of the poor n martyrs

Not meant for the weak

To prevail in this jungle you ought to be a tiger

For years we’ve been on this path

After our oppressors left us

Our own brother in turn became our tormentors

They made our journey full of briers n sorrow

Dogs are not fit to survive in this jungle

Elephants can’t dare it

To prevail in this jungle you ought to be a tiger

Our leaders are our traitors

They promise light

In return we saw fire

They promise water

In return we saw spit

Their habitation is in the dark places of the earth

Therefore our path they left dark like night

Sheep cannot cope in our journey

Neither can goat venture it

To prevail u ought to be a tiger

We prayed for leaders

But found rulers

We prayed for home

Our rulers gave us jungle

We sought for pillow to lay our wearied head

But found stone

We prayed for road

But our rulers set traps on our highways

Thousands of us had watered that

path with their blood

No Bull survived it neither did any
Antelope crossed it

To prevail you ought to be a tiger

To survive this jungle most of us ran to spiritual tents

Perhaps we could be made invincible

Lo our merchants are slaves in the underworld

In search for power they have drank

from pot of destruction

Little wonder they are pencils in the devil’s hand

Leaving our path hard like rock

Oh the path we tread no monkey can venture

To prevail you ought to be a tiger
