You Lose When You Quit

There is a lion roaring inside of you;
Wanting to scream for justice!
Many innocent lives destroyed in front of you
Your hands are not tied yet you can do nothing

So much of anger inside of you
Not because of the corruption around you
But because you can do nothing about it
You’ve tried many times to fight for it;
Only if people were as concerned as you

Helpless and frustrated;
No one to walk the talk
You think so low of yourself
Because you have no money and power
After all it has all gone into wrong hands

You can feel the blood in your eyes seeing the ugly truth of the society
You’ve tried a thousand times to bring unity among tribes;
All they did was blame you and assume you have no respect for their tribe and culture

You tried to used the best possible way to talk about peace in the society;
All they did was appreciate you and never bothered to take the initiative to bring the change, the good change!

They have buried you so deep,
You have no more strength or confidence
But if you give up now,
Who will take the next stand?

You have chosen this path;
You cannot give up now
The pain and struggle you are in,
will be a blessing to many someday
Be selfless just one more time

Your struggles for a corruption free society will never go in vain
Your one step of bravery will encourage thousands to bring positive changes in life;
Not just in words and pictures!

You cannot give up now
You haven’t lose the battle yet
You lose when you quit!

Don’t you think our society needs more of people like you?
