keep It New

I can, yes I can
Lions were silenced at my strike
Cheetahs seized to breath at my roar
I have done it countless times
Making, building, lifting, moulding
To mention a few, I can
I can, cos I used to
Don’t really know why it’s like this
So many of these have I done
All with ease and glee
I used to, even just the other day
Ore yes you can, my guy yes you will
After all prowess is given life
Babe you will when you take a break and learn
You can if you will just sharpen the axe
You will when you are willing to renew that mind

The glory of yesterday is good
Not good enough for the rising of today
Make it come new each day
Keep it fresh every sec
Keep it new all day long

My Nothern Trajectory

I remember my second journey to the North
It was all amazing through the paths
Moutains left me awed
With fields so broad.
Warmly welcomed by people so awesome
The generosity that left me awestruck.
I was put in a classroom to teach
But my students didn’t understand my speech
This was challenging to me
Because I’m aware education is the key
For my nothern friends to be free.
Now I’m back to the south
Hoping we will all one day be proud
Praying my friends much couth.
