THR CHOSEN ONE?
THE CHOSEN ONE?
There is this fire that burns in me
It’s hatred but then love
It’s no ordinary fire to douse easily
Its hatred for corruption and terrorism
The battlefield is set
The soldiers are ready for battle as always
The patriotism is there
The fire is steady burning in us all
We await a general to lead us even if it’s a lieutenant or a private
All we want is someone to lead us to fight the enemies
To fight terrorism
To fight corruption
To fight those destroying the nation
We are sitting on a keg of explosive that will explode anytime
“Give us someone to lead us” this is our daily cry
We await ‘the chosen one’
We await a hero just like we see in movies
we await a vigilante, a city hunter, a superman, a metahuman that will slay the evil ones of the nation overnight….we await an overnight miracle and in a fortnight the nation will be better?
Who is the chosen one?
Who is going to rescue us other than ourselves?
We have the passion in us but we have no courage to face ourselves….we know that for the nation to be better, we must start first with ourselves.
Charity they say begins a t home but we do not want to believe the fact…all we want is a chosen one
We are the chosen ones and till we don’t realize that, our sufferings have just begun.
