You Ain't us

I don’t know what to do anymore
Who to run to or who to implore
Somalia is the subject of the moment
People pretending to care from the government
Whatever your intentions maybe
Please leave us to it, we know what can set us free
Dadkeena iska daaya, dulkeena ka baxa
We’re not you and you ain’t us
We see you plotting and advise you reassess
The outcome is clear, is the 23rd for your convenience?
When pushed to the limit, we unite and revive
‘Cause the truth is Somali people were born to survive
It’s taken time I agree and our people should choose peace over war
How does it help when you prefer not to restore
The nation that was once Africa’s gleaming light
A beautiful place with wonders that soothed the sight
Facts like tribe or name will not stand in the way
Too much has happened for us to not seize this day
Are you all with me, prepared and ready to inspire
Let’s take the steps to create the future we all desire
