RECONCILIATION

It is never for the fainthearted
the chronicles,
the manifestations
and the aftermath
Whenever massacre beckons,
on innocent souls
Whenever breadwinners are slayed,
by daggers of cruelty
It is red ochres
that glorify the villains,
savagery and disrepute

It is never for the fainthearted
the aftermath,
the manifestations
and the chronicles
As to the eternal gratuity,
we owe it to our own selves
As we put behind us ancient rivalry
and light up the lamp for dialogue
As to the eternal homage,
we pay it to our heroes
who now rest in peaceful abodes
Conflict should never be an option,
let alone a solution
‘Asante mashujaa wetu’
