I still write a verse
Though I may not be here to sing
Some really dont like to hear my voice
So I write for others to sing
I dont just write because I have a pen
I write to free his sheep from the pen.

I give them all poems for free to read
Yet they come with many questions
With answers all in the lines
Oh sorry, I just realized that you dont read
Maybe I should put it in music
"But the beats aren’t born-again."

You want to know why
We are on our devices when you visit?
Because you have many life lessons to share
And we just need someone to listen
They may not really give us what we need
But at least they listen to what we have to say.

𝑹𝒆𝒑𝒍𝒚 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 “𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒆, 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒌 𝑮𝒐𝒅”
This is why when you ask how we are doing
Reply with “fine, thank God”
Because we know that’s what you want to hear
You are not really interested in how we are doing
But rather, just wanted to tick your checklist
And we have to support your ministry.

You wonder why the artistes got more influence than our parents?
They show us that they can relate with our pains
And like the healthcare workers in the pandemic
They are our living heroes
Now I have shown you what we want
I hope that someday we can call you our heroes.
