Hope

She cries aloud, alas! Her progenies are taken, Her unborn, unjustly killed
She wails for her land, her green, her forests are plundered, her rivers are soiled
She sobs for her own, her womb now ripped apart, her guts fail her
She is a traveller, a sojourner, a voyager on a patience journey, a peace lover, seeking respite in the land of strangers, on the minds of distressed maidens and lads
She cries aloud, alas! Her progenies are taken, her unborn, unjustly killed
She holds unto hope, she dares the odd, stooping to conquer with love
She steers on, navigating with love in oceans of hate and war
She wins with joy, she wins with peace, she wins with love, she wins
