this day at a.b.j march 16. enough is enough

Jeremiah 17:9 (English Standard Version) The Holy Bible

The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?

Proverbs 29:4 (New International Version) The Holy Bible
By justice a king gives a country stability, but one who is greedy for bribes tears it down

Enough is Enough...
Is it fair that leaders let the people suffer.
People who also have blood flowing in their veins
Whose hearts beat each moment, just to keep them alive

who can understand the heart, Jeremiah asks
who can understand a man who sees another in need and feels nothing
empathy, sympathy instead apathy

how desperately sick are the hearts of those that lead the nation
yes desperately sick!
you ask me 'who gives you right to say such...things?'
the things i've experienced, seen and hear about
the things we've experienced, seen and hear about

you can't justify your words, flygirl...

but how long would it take for one third of our roads to be made good
how long must we wait...my life time? and more?
it is not so hard, for small countries which don't have as much natural resources
as we do, to have stable electricity
but for our large country...

and oh! yes school
every child has a right to be educated
every child has a right to learn
every child has a right to hope to have a great future
why do they rob us of these things and still walk head high in the open?

enough is enough
... because we say so
... because the time to take the upper hand is now
... because even though they say the world is not fair we have a right to the basic ameneties and good health

to the one who is greedy for bribes...

enough is enough
