A POEM FOUR YEARS AGO

Mohamed A. Arkow
Sunday, February 7, 2021

This Poem was published on Hiiraan Online in January 2017 (a month before President Famaajo was elected). We are publishing it again at the end of President Farmaajo’s four years mandate. The poem reminds us that true democracy and rule of law are not just a Western thing but a human thing. We are very confident that WE, the Somali people will rise from the ashes of the civil war and build a truly democratic, powerful and prosperous country.

LIKE THE MEN IN THE WEST

In the Horn of hell    we dare to hope

United in heart         the law will rule

And live like the men in the West    

With believe in God   and love for land

Forward we leap        and fly   and fly

And live like the men in the West

With stamina and sweat   we claim

And own what is good in nature     

And live like the men in the West

There is more to claim   and more to own

Just aim that high           and see no limit in sky 

And live like the men in the West

To rule   this land             our land

For He and She                 no gun in hand

With paper in the box     it’s what they do

 It’s what we can

To live like the men in the West
