Celebrating East African Writing!
Sing me, sing me a song
That reminds me where I belong;
A song that soothes my heart
With timeless beauty of art
Sing me a song of inspiration
That leads me to conviction;
That blows my mind away
Just like the wind in May
Sing me a song that instructs
And not a song that distracts;
Sweeter than the sweetest text
And keeps me guessing what’s next…
Won’t you, won’t you sing me a song?
