About Somalia

In the Darkest corners of Somalia

Where Bullets fly in a forgotten land

Where children live on Dirty water and dried Rice

Where there is so much hope But no rope to hold on to

Where loyalties are tested

Where you have to fight for your Life

Where children sit under trees to read their Quran

And one day wish people of the land will return

Where mothers cry

Silence in a place like this can not do much

So much to do so little time

At the end of the day

I come home with poetry and Faith

Save our people save our land

We can not feel their pain even if we try

This motherly Land has been torn apart

We smile while we bleed

We are the Horn of Africa
