THE OUTCRY FOR CHANGE

There is a strong argument going on within me, a fight if I'm not mistaken. My soul really wants to do this but my body strongly disagree.
Few days ago, while walking down reality lane I mistakenly tripped over my bucket of self esteem, almost leaving it empty.
Since then, my soul has been longing to flee from my body, and that's why my heart has been so hefty. Although I'm not so sure about this, I think if you have your beat headset on, you could be hearing the music of my heart beat.
That apart.
I'm standing for youths with the vision to create a better nation because
On top of every HILLS
And down in every VALLEY
The birds has become so STILL
and made the trees so LONELY
.
The land has become so THIRSTY
because the sky has refused to cry but BLINK,
the oceans and the rivers so DIRTY
because the sun has refused to DRINK.
.
A fascinating mirage took place last FORTNIGHT
I heard the rage and roars of the THUNDER
and that was at about MIDNIGHT
with the sound as the rushing of WATER.
.
Waking up very early the next MORNING,
I saw a land so much DRY
and with no sign of fog or dews FALLING,
I became worried because the sky didn't CRY.
.
See, the trees and other living THINGS,
they joined us in this song of CHANGE
but with their voices so THIN,
they made the song sound so STRANGE.
.
Now the impoverished and the PEASANTS
are crying in desperation for FOOD,
while the rich who had lived life so PLEASANT
are now calling their spendthrift wives FOOLS.
.
Little wonder why our youths are going GAGA
covering their woes with rags in the name of FASHION,
and our girls illicitly going from miss to young
MAMAs
all for a 3 to 5 minutes pleasure with no end SATISFACTION.
.
Who shall stand for US?
Who shall carry out the TASK?
Who shall recover all we've LOST?
When shall we stop to ASK?
.
Necessity has been laid on us to effect this desired change we NEED, because this change can't be until we get up from our SEAT.
.
Now let's put away this garment the undesirable change gave US,
and let's put on our old garment of unity and ONE-MINDEDNESS. Fighting among ourselves won't make our matter better, but WORSE,
but in agreement together we shall create a nation with love so BOUNDLESS.
.
This I think we should all KNOW,
We can only change things when we come TOGETHER,
Bringing down ourselves so LOW
Working in unity knowing this won't last FOREVER.
.
When we work with this VISION,
Taking it upon ourselves as a MISSION,
Together we shall achieve our AMBITION
Thus creating happiness to our next 100 GENERATION.
.
Though this may sound so STRANGE,
I believe the change is in our HANDS.
We are the agents of that better CHANGE
Which aims at bringing normalcy to our LAND.
.
I believe in this possibility
I see a better you afterwards
A better me
A better us
A better community
A better nation
A better planet
A better world
I see a better future
And that future begins now
ARE YOU GOING TO BE A PART OF THAT GREAT FUTURE?
IF YES
THEN HOW MUCH EFFORT ARE YOU PUTTING INTO IT?
THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
