What brought jealousy
What brought ethnic division?
Is it because of scarce resources?
Is it heart of corruption?
And love for power?
Who wants to rule and who to rule?
Who wants to run and who to remain?
Who is robbing, killing or hating?
What is logic behind this immorality?
Are we still having that love of one people?
Do we know our national call as citizens?
To promote peace, equality and unity?
Oh South Sudanese
Where are you hiding all along?
Why are you keeping quiet?
Have you become powerless and speechless?
To defend your mother land South Sudan?
Ask yourself what brought the suffering
See these young born in suffering
They are growing up in suffering
They don’t eat, they don’t read because
No enough food and quality education
Should they continue living is this agony?
What have they done, Oh angels of God
You the elders are against their future
If you don’t be war makers
These children would be peacemakers
Rescue beautiful innocent God’s children
Where are you fathers and mothers?
Where are you guardians and others?
Show these young children a bright future
