Kenyan Elections-A Poem For Peace

                                       

A country holds on with breath that is bated,
For five long years a community has waited.
In March '13 the Kenyan Polls have been slated.


To the polling station,
Will march an entire nation.
Democracy brings about a heady elation.


Though there are heart wrenching memories of 2008,
And of justice that had a lengthy wait.
But to give peace a chance it is never too late.


Church bells ring,temple bells chime,
Their message is supremely sublime.
Together we will firmly bond,
Of 2013 we will create memories fond.


A stronger Kenya will surely emerge,
Hatred it's head of course will submerge.
Here's to our very own piece of paradise,
Here's to a beautiful nation's imminent rise!
