Is It Possible?

 

Is it possible?
That the beats of a talking drum
Will become the sounds of victory
Is it possible?
That the casting down
Will be the lifting up
Is it possible?
That the cries of pain
Will be the sounds of joy
Is it possible?
Even though blood has spilled
We’ll see our nation heal
Is it possible?
To change everything we feel.
That the hopelessness
And the brokenness
And the lack of trust
And unrighteousness.
When recession hits
That our hopes and dreams
Will make it through
Even when it seems
That we’re the young generation
So no one’s listening
We’re too young
To concern ourselves with politicians
We should stay in school
We should learn to do
What is best for us
So our nation grows
But we have to see
But we have to think
The talking drum resonates
With our victory
So we can’t give up
We’ll never stop
Young or not
We’ll change the world
Casting down
No!
Lifting up
Is it possible?
– Chiamaka Okike
